The retail price on this guitar is over 18K! This guitar is being sold as our Floor Demo Model. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case and manufacturers warranty. It's still in primo shape but with a Nitro Finish and a some time in this environment we call the real world, some light finish swirling is present though nothing perceptible until you are really up close to the finish.
This is a stunning 45 model made from the highest quality components that Martin can get their hands on. The D-45 is considered the pinnacle of Martin guitars so we took that model and upped it a notch. Beautiful Guatemalan Rosewood back and sides provide an incredibly deep and rich tone that is well balanced across all frequencies. Highs sparkle and the mid range is nice and punchy. The low's stay clear, crisp, and articulate. Great guitar for strumming and flat picking. A bluegrass players dream guitar thanks in part to it's Adirondack Spruce Top which allows this Acoustic to go to 11 or rather 12 or 13!
The performance artist neck is well shaped and very comfortable to play. The frets are perfectly dressed and intonation is spot on. A genuine Mahogany Neck is carved to the Performing Artist profile
