The Martin D45 Retro brings you the best of traditional building with state of the art technology. Using a 1942 D45 from their museum as a tone example, they wanted to create an instrument that would resemble a 40’s era instrument acoustically and amplified. They teamed up Fishman and producer Bill VornDick, utilizing VornDick’s private collection of rare vintage microphones they created an acoustic electric sound that resembled the sound of the instrument in an early professional recording studio. The result of this collaboration is called the Fishman F1 Aura. Upon completion of the project VornDick said “The plugged-in sound of these instruments is by far, the best reproduced acoustic sound I’ve ever heard". The instrument features a Sitka spruce top, standard X scalloped forward shifted bracing, high-performance low oval profile neck, ebony fingerboard, mahogany neck, and hand inlaid pearl. The D45 in the most ornate instrument of the Martin family.. This product comes with a case.
