Description

The folks at Martin Guitars have brought another historic gem back to new life with a limited run of recreated Martins from the turn of the twentieth century. This is their 00-45S 1902 model, built in 2003 to match exactly the specs of one of four 45-style prototypes built in 1902 (the 45 didn’t come onto the scene until 1904).
Here we have the hallmarks of modern 45-style appointments, but in addition the original prototype featured an integrated pickguard between the bridge and soundhole in the style of Martin mandolin pickguards of the time. All this over Brazilian Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce.
This beauty is number five of an exclusive 100. Exquisitely lively, this 00-45S has a quick response and surprising depths to the bass and middle registers. This one comes with the original coffin hardshell case, and we have a Martin TKL case as well that can be shipped separately at additional cost.

This is not just a looker: this guitar has mojo. A big voice for a small bodied instrument, and details that do justice to the original 1902 version.
