Beautiful Martin D-45, 2003 model. The second of two D-45's we've had in the past couple of weeks.
This one is in even cleaner condition than the one previously listed.
Near mint, with only a few very faint marks on the pickguard and one miniscule mark on the back. As clean an example as you will find for a near 20 year old guitar. Received as a gift, and has only been played a handful of times.
Less than a couple of hours play time in almost 20 years. Presents almost like new, with the benefit of nearly two-decades of age in the wood.
Incredible sound - rich, piano-like bass, clear and balanced top end, and lots of volume.
Includes original Martin hardshell case. It is in its case with a premium brown Buffalo strap and limited edition G7 capo, around $200+ extra value.
"The D-45 Dreadnought is the flagship model of the Standard Series. It is the most ornate Standard Series instrument, featuring hand inlaid pearl and premium tonewoods. The guitar of choice for legends like Gene Autry and Stephen Stills, it’s the perfect guitar for a discerning collector or musician. "
