Description: Acoustic Guitar - 1977 Martin D-45 Acoustic Guitar
The guitar is in excellent condition Ė the action is low, there is no fret wear, the neck is straight, plays like a dream, has excellent tone and has never been repaired. It has been played frequently, but only in my home (smoke free) and has never seen crowds or professional use.
The only guitarís only flaw is that there is a slight split at the top and bottom of the pick guard. The Martin repair shop has looked at it and they said "Itís really a cosmetic issue, Martin used a glue that was too strong and since the pick guard and wood expand / contract at different rates, something has to give and thatís the wood". They went on to say "The repair is fairly simple, the pick guard is removed and a slightly larger pick guard is installed and a new type of glue is used". They also suggested that since I am selling the guitar, the new owner should decide whether they want a completely original guitar or not.
For any question please contact me.
