Your chance to own Martin's flagship dreadnought guitar
Looking for the top dog in Martin's production lineup? Here it is. The D-45 represents the most elegantly appointed dreadnought Martin offers in their line. You get it all with this guitar: a big, open sound, gorgeous appointments, 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; the D-45 model is simply the pinnacle of a premium brand.
You'll love these tonewoods
While you may be attracted, at first glance, to the D-45 for its elegant looks, you'll soon find that the heart of this guitar truly lies in the big yet detailed sound it gives you. Martin constructed the D-45's back and sides from solid East Indian rosewood, which, in combination with a solid Sitka spruce top, provides you with a rich tonality and the kind of acoustic punch you need to make yourself heard. You'll also love the D-45's premium solid black ebony fingerboard and bridge.
Experience a Martin with gorgeous appointments
You might just find yourself playing the D-45 in front of a mirror — so you can admire its beautiful appointments while you enjoy its tones! 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. This beautiful dreadnought still boasts abalone pearl top, side, and back inlays, and its fingerboard features distinctive hexagonal Style 45 position inlays.
