The Martin D-45 Authentic is made exactly as the company manufactured the original pre-war D-45 Dreadnoughts. This reproduction features an ebony non-adjustable neck rod, solid pearl inlays, premium bookmatched Brazilian rosewood back, sides and headplate, and Brazilian inlays in the top, rosette, side and back.
Perhaps one of the most important authentic features of the 1942 D-45 is the 100% hot hide glue construction. Other authentic features include a beveled faux tortoise pickguard, ivoriod binding on the body, soundhole rosette, fingerboard, headstock, heel cap and end piece, gold tuners and a fossilized ivory bridge pins, long saddle and nut, and finished with the thin nitrocellulose polished lacquer, just like the original.
This historically-accurate design replicates the feel, sound, look, and essence of a pre-war Martin D-45.

I ordered this with much anticipation, but when I went to pick it up at the store, I was disappointed to discover it only had 20 frets and 6 stings. So only four stars from me. I guess I was expecting too much for the money. Maybe the OM-45 DeLuxe Authentic 1930 will offer a little something more. Two soundholes maybe. No wait, I've already got . . .
One to carry on the airplane, and one to take down to the bar to jam.
