Sonic Evaluation

The king is back! We sold this guitar originally, and we are delighted to have it under our roof again. It's always a treat to have a D-45 here at Wildwood and this one happens to be one of the most impressive yet. This time we've paired an exceptionally tight-grained high-altitude Swiss spruce top with an utterly jaw-dropping--and we mean JAW-DROPPING--set of Ziricote back and sides. This 45 presents with a broad and powerful voice with more low-end oomph than most can handle and MASSIVE amounts of sustain and harmonic richness. The Ziricote back and sides keep things defined and clear, and the Swiss spruce top brings back in a healthy dose of warmth and ease of response. To the future owner: please allow the Wildwood staff to have visitation rights!

Condition Report

This marvelous Martin is in excellent shape, and it shows hardly any signs of use. It comes with its original Martin hardshell case, too!
