Description

Such a delight to see this one in the shop. This is one of Martin’s most coveted signature series, the 1999 D-45SS Stephen Stills, and we’ve landed number 86 of 91 of that most exclusive run. Each of these was built with figured Brazilian Rosewood and Alpine Spruce on top, plus perfectly executed 45-style appointments and a MOP Southern Cross inlaid into the guard in homage to CSN. This particular beauty has the snowflakes & diamonds fretboard spread as well.
Tonally, this is a distinctive, expressive, exquisitely musical Dreadnought. It’s sensitive enough for fingerpicking, and also has enough headroom for aggressive strumming without breaking up.

Martin makes hundreds of signature series, but only a handful ever become truly iconic and highly sought after. The Stephen Stills D-45 is certainly one. We've only ever sold a few but every time we do the response is tremendous as there are so many fans of the great Stephen stills and of course Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young). But also because this is one signature series Martin has nailed! The tone is incredible.
 
I cut my teeth on nothing but CSNY growing up, and it’s such a joy to visit with this D-45SS Stephen Stills. The voice is fabulous, lush and velvety and enveloping. Play hard, play soft, and this one is right there with you the entire time.
