Description

Here we have one of the 91 limited edition Custom Mandolin Brothers Reissue 1939 Martin D-45s. Mandolin Bros. was the first to ask Martin to recreate the great sound of the prewar guitars by having them remade with scalloped braces, T-bar, V neck and all the wonderful 45 Style Appointments. This one is 1 of 5 ever made in Brazilian Rosewood making it extremely rare and collectible and the sound is huge! To have this recreated today by Martin would cost over $50,000. This one has been kept as new in the case so it's completely mint and original.

1 of 91 made, and 1 of 5 made in Brazilian, this is a collector's dream guitars. But the voice is also amazing, very big sound that roars thanks to the scalloped bracing. It plays perfectly as it is in like new condition, kept beautifully by it's owner.
 
A very collectible instrument, this is a reissue of the 1939 Martin that was commissioned by Mandolin Bros. and has that characteristic Martin tone and projection that is associated with these instruments
