Martin D-45 Brazilian Custom (1990)



This 1990 Martin D-45 Brazilian Custom would be a fantastic acquisition for the player who's yearned for a Brazilian Rosewood D-45 but doesn't want to go the custom-shop route. The Brazilian Rosewood on this guitar is beautifully colored & figured (much better than what we've seen on newer Brazilian Martins); and this guitar has been played! It's got the kind of big, rich & open tone players wait years for their guitars to develop -- a perfect strumming & vocal accompaniment guitar that retains its fullness and power even when capo'd at the 4th & 5th frets. Very good overall condition -- it exhibits some superficial lacquer crazing (see photos) but presents excellently in hand. Priced with its original hard case.
