The Martin D-45 Dreadnought is the flagship model of the Standard Series. It is the most ornate of all the instruments, featuring hand inlaid pearl on the top, back, sides, and neck. Premium tonewoods and all the advancements of the reimagined Standard Series such as a 1 3/4″ nut width, forward shifted scalloped braces, antique white binding and a high performance neck.
As Chris Martin stated earlier this year, reimagining a D-28 Dreadnought is very hard. Going through this process for a D-45 is even harder! Do take a look at the YouTube vid for more info and sound samples of the reimagining process of the 40-series Martin Guitars. This D-45 is the best sounding and looking Martin one can get. The top of the bill (next to the custom shop models of course). This 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 discerning collector or musician. Nothing says you’ve arrived like a D-45.
