Martin D-45E Retro Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
Martin's flagship dreadnought guitar just got even better
Looking for the top dog in Martin's production lineup? Here it is. The D-45E Retro is a flawless reissue of the most elegantly appointed dreadnought Martin offers, outfitted with the choicest tonewoods and adorned with their finest appointments. You get it all with this guitar - warm and wide-open sound, gorgeous inlays, and the kind of playability that makes you want to pick it up again and again. It's no coincidence that prewar D-45s are some of the most sought-after guitars in the world - and not just because they're so rare. And with its premium Fishman F1 Aura Plus electronics, the D-45E Retro takes the classic D-45 to a whole new level of perfection.
Breathtaking tonewoods provide that timeless Martin sound
When you close your eyes and imagine the sound of an acoustic guitar, chances are that you're hearing the sound of a Martin D-45 in your head. That's no coincidence. The fact is - the sound of a D-45 is the result of the perfect balance between its dreadnought body style and the classic tonewoods it's made from. The Martin D-45E Retro features a back and sides made of solid East Indian rosewood, topped with premium solid Sitka spruce. The result is that, from day one, your D-45E Retro will give you the sweet and full sound you'd expect from a well-aged D-45.
Exquisite inlays and eye-popping appointments galore!
During the company's first century or so of existence, Martin had avoided making their guitars with too much "flashy ornamentation," arguing that it would detract from the tone and the "dignity" of the instruments. But when Gene Autry custom-ordered the biggest, fanciest acoustic Martin could muster in 1933, the company complied. Thus, the first D-45 was born. Ratcheting the bar even higher, the D-45E Retro features a lusciously playable modified low oval profile/Performing Artist taper neck topped with with a buttery solid black ebony fingerboard embellished with select abalone pearl Style 45 snowflake inlays. Acoustic guitars don't get any better than this!
