The D-45 is the most ornately appointed guitar in the Martin line.
Martin has put more than 900 individual pieces of abalone into the bindings and inlays of the top, sides, back, and rosette of the D-46 Dreadnought Acoutic Guitar. Large 'C.F. Martin' abalone letters adorn the headstock; abalone hexagon inlays are used as position markers on the bound ebony fingerboard. Solid spruce top and traditional Martin bracing pattern generate fantastic tone from this beautiful guitar. Features rich solid rosewood sides and 2-piece back. Limited lifetime warranty. The D-45 Dreadnought includes a deluxe Martin hardshell case ($190 value).
