Martin (used) 00-45 Custom Shop Acoustic Guitar Adi Madi

Tag No 32-4402 Used

#1615176, Premium Adirondack top, with Madagascar rosewood back and sides, in “near mint” condition,with the original hard shell case.

This guitar is in “nearly new” condition. The Madagascar on this guitar is stunning.  There are swirly hues of brown and black on the back, but pretty straight on the sides; the premium grade top is made of  quilted Adirondack spruce, and the pearl inlay, and there is a lot of it everywhere, is made with Paua Abalone. This inlay includes an extensive and ornate “alternate torch inlay” on the headstock with Style-45 snowflakes on the fingerboard.  When comparing Paua to the more conventionally used abalone, you notice that the Paua has more vibrant colors, more sparkly turquoise or sea green. 

This is a vibrating object of great majesty whose place in history is one of momentous provenance and whose sound will thrill you with an experience you will not soon forget.    The action is low and eminently playable with the lightest touch, and the sound is magical. Back in 2012, this had a list price of $14,999(!). However this is priced much lower as a previously owned but almost never played instrument.
