Built the old-fashioned way to give you the genuine Martin look, feel, and sound that made people fall in love with Martins in the first place.
Talk about authenticity, Martin's Authentics Series guitars are constructed the old way - with hide glue, throughout, and historically-accurate detailing confirmed by using a CAT scan machine located at the Smithsonian Institute. The D-45S Authentic 1936 is based on a large body D-45 located in their museum, and features Brazilian rosewood back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, period-correct "45" Authentic-style appointments, and includes gold tuners with hand-engraved butterbean knobs.
