Dreadnoughts


Perhaps the only pre-war sunburst D-45, this guitar also sports Brazilian rosewood, a tortoiseshell headstock veneer, engraved Grover tuners with the Martin M, and a factory-original F-9 style fingerboard with alternating black/white borders. A Dreadnought from the last batch of 45s made in 1938, this guitar has hexagon inlays instead of snowflakes, leading some to consider it a forerunner of the modern D-45.
