This awesome Martin D-45 Custom has it all. Superb looks and even more important: from a tonal point of view, this Martin is amongst the best of the best: very well-balanced notes all over the fretboard. Flatpicking, strumming and fingerpicking this magnificent instrument will overwhelm you with inspiration and lead you to new musical horizons. Martin uses the term Golden Era for a variation of their Scalloped Bracing. This type of Scalloping is more aggressive compared to a standard scallop. With Golden Era Scalloping, there is more wood shaved from the Braces and the X brace is a little tighter fit. This variation of scalloping helps the tone and responsiveness, by letting the top vibrate more freely.
The modern Martin D-45 is a distinctive guitar and top of the line. The D-45 Custom is above that mark. Premium tonewoods and hand tuned Adirondack braces bases on the modern Era techniques lead to an outstanding guitar in tone and looks. In short, this D-45 Custom is amongst the very best sounding and looking Martin guitars one can get. She is the guitar of choice for legends like Gene Autry and Neil Young, Steven Stills and John Mayer. Even Jimi Hendrix owned and played one back in the days. It’s the perfect guitar for any guitar aficionado & collector.
