Overview

The D-45S Authentic 1936 is based on a large body D-45 located in their museum, and features Brazilian rosewood back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, period-correct "45" Authentic-style appointments, and includes gold tuners with hand-engraved butterbean knobs.

The best sounding acoustic guitar that I have ever heard.

By PETE HERRERA

from Colorado Springs

Comments about Martin 2014 D-45S Authentic 1936 Acoustic Guitar:

Wow. I cannot get over how emotional this guitar is. I love how expressive the nuances are and how beautiful this instrument sounds. It expresses a lot of emotions. To me it is surreal. It expresses the emotions that all acoustic guitars should express. It is by far the best sounding acoustic guitar that I have ever heard. It's amazing, how expressive, and emotional it is. This is the only acoustic guitar to own. It is nice to see that quality still exist. Sincerely Yours, Pete Herrera

    Comments about Martin 2014 D-45S Authentic 1936 Acoustic Guitar:

    Jimi Townshend here. At the end of a gig when it's time to destroy a guitar, this is my first choice. Smashes real fine. I keep several of these on hand just for when the mood hits. Sometimes, if the stage is really dark, I'll pour lighter fluid on splintered remains and light it up. Not much ash left behind, which is an indication of great quality wood.
