The Martin D-45 Koa Acoustic Guitar, with highly flamed Hawaiian koa back and sides, combines the extraordinary beauty of this rare and cherished wood with the power, projection and balanced tonality of Martin's 14-fret dreadnought design. With bass response slightly less than East Indian Rosewood and treble response slightly less than genuine mahogany, koa produces a beautifully balanced, clear tone that is only outshined by the beauty of its honey rippled grain. The D-45 Koa shares appointments with Martin's top-of-the-line D-45.

I got this guitar... and its really awsome... by everything the looks, feels, and even the way it pleases your ears... if you like john mayers and jason mraz kinda things both type of sound will come out of this guitar... but even better if you use the DR strings on these... but yea..
