About This Listing

Now available for sale is a rare collectible and highly sought-after Martin D-45 200th Year Anniversary Commemorative Limited Edition, which was designed by Chris Martin IV. It was custom-designed to celebrate Martin’s founder Chris Martin I the first’s 200th Birthday. Chris IV handpicked luthiers and woods. In this case, East Indian Rosewood back and sides, and select Sitka Spruce top.

One top finish ding that came from the previous owner has been professionally refinished with perfect smoothness to the touch. There's some remaining scratch on the back corner of the headstock, which does not affect playability. Please also note that a thin humidity crack has been resealed and stabilized by a professional luthier, which has been factored into the pricing of this rare instrument.

Every part from start to finish is the best from the top luthiers that Chris used to build the special Custom Shop Master Skill-made D-45 guitars, of which only 114 units were completed. Here is a chance to own the 1996-made #96 of 114 units worldwide. They did not finish 200 as originally planned so it is indeed an early and rare one. All factory 100% original with the custom shop original case.

The nut width is 4.5 centimeters = 1.772 inches, about 1 3/4

Ships with insurance, tracking and signature requirement.
