Martin D-45 German Spruce (1971) very clean

Serial: #278589 early 1971 Martin D-45,  Martins flagship model was build in very low numbers back in the days,.. i don't know the exact number but i doubt they built more than 50 of these in 1971.  Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young proudly played the the D-45 back in the days of 'Deja Vu' and the beautiful unique sophisticated voice of the D-45 with German spruce top back in the days blended perfectly with the CSN&Y harmonics. It's one of those guitars that set a standard and it's quite unique as well, the German spruce top with its complex harmonics and added clarity was only used for a small number of years back in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Other features include Indian Rosewood back and sides, Ebony fretboard and bridge, ornamate style 45 abalone trim around the top, fingerboard extension, back amd sides, style 45 hexagon inlays on the bound ebony fingerboard, CFM Martin Blockletter inlay on the bound peghead with rosewood overlay.

This particular D-45 sounds very very very good,  a wonderfully matured example of Martin history, perfectly balanced, beautiful strong balanced bass response, powerful mids and breathtaking crystal clear treble response.

This guitar is also in exceptionally fine totally crackfree condition, structurally perfect with all original finish, with light weather weather checking on the body, and the endpin wedge is slightly shrunk. The guitar did have a neckreset already which is excecuted perfectly, sound and playability are next to none with perfect action of 2.4mm and 1.8mm at the 12th. The saddle has been replaced and the bridge is intonated for better intonation, This is the perfect guitar for the discerning collector/ musician. a rare chance on a very rare guitar, with original hardcase.
