Go big or go home! Martin's D-45 is their top-shelf dreadnought. It's beautifully appointed from top to bottom. Whether it's the east indian rosewood back and sides, the ebony fingerboard, the abalone inlays or the meticulously inlaid abalone on the edges, it's a design for the ages. Well cooked, but not overdone. This one comes with a factory installed pickup so it's gig-ready from the moment you crack open the case.
