Replicates the feel, sound, look, and essence of a pre-war Martin D-45.

The Martin D-45 Authentic is made exactly as the company manufactured the original pre-war D-45 Dreadnoughts. This reproduction features an ebony non-adjustable neck rod, solid pearl inlays, premium bookmatched Brazilian rosewood back, sides and headplate, and Brazilian inlays in the top, rosette, side and back.

Perhaps one of the most important authentic features of the 1942 D-45 is the 100% hot hide glue construction. Other authentic features include a beveled faux tortoise pickguard, ivoriod binding on the body, soundhole rosette, fingerboard, headstock, heel cap and end piece, gold tuners and a fossilized ivory bridge pins, long saddle and nut, and finished with the thin nitrocellulose polished lacquer, just like the original.

This historically-accurate design replicates the feel, sound, look, and essence of a pre-war Martin D-45.

      Comments about Martin D-45 Authentic 1942 Dreadnought Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

      Golly, I am in the same boat as another buyer. This guitar is the most beautiful piece of workmanship and tone I have ever played. However, I am right-handed and playing left-handed proved too much of an obstacle for me and my teacher to overcome. But, golly, indeed those Seagull models are fantastic and they are finished in pure nitro lacquer -excellent tone. I used the remainder of my refund to buy the Gibson company and convert it to making 12 fret slot heads out of Missouri oak and shrubbery.

          Comments about Martin D-45 Authentic 1942 Dreadnought Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

          A pure work of art. Was really surprised when I opened the box and saw it was a backwards guitar. UNBELIEVABLE sound. But it was really, really hard playing it since I'm right handed. Anyway, I tried, but I couldn't do it consistently so I returned it and got my money back. Bought a Seagull S6 and a great Mercedes. Couldn't be happier.
