This Used 2016 Martin Custom Shop D-45 12-Fret Acoustic-Electric Guitar in Natural is here on consignment. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod functions properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case. We ordered and sold this guitar originally so it's nice to have it back.
This Custom Shop D-45 features 12 fret design which means the neck and body meet at the 12th fret instead of the 14th. It's exceptionally comfortable to play due to a slightly shorter feel. But it still BOOMS like a Martin Dread with plenty of bass, musical mids, and a sweet top-end.
The back and sides are made of Wild Grain Rosewood, which are beautiful! Captivating and unique, you won't find another guitar that looks exactly like this one.
The top is made from Sitka Spruce as are the internal braces. The braces are scalloped to let the top move as much as possible, increasing the guitar's overall output. Highs are higher, lows are lower, and it's hard to deny the effect of scalloped braces. We also have the stunning Abalone inlays all over the body of the guitar. The 45 Series dress is next level and this guitar is dressed to kill!
The neck is made from Select Hardwood and features Martin's Low Profile Neck Carve. The fingerboard is made from Ebony which has 45 Style, Abalone Heaxgon Inlays that are gorgeous! A Double Bound Body only adds tot he elegance of this Acoustic Guitar.
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, gets cleaned, then some fresh strings, and a full set-up before being put up for sale. We often even put guitars with worn frets through our Plek machine if need be! Rest assured, any Used Guitar from The Music Gallery has certainly passed its physical!
