Martin D-45 Fire & Ice Guitar #5 of 17

Serial Number: 2181859

This Golden Era Style D-45 is the newest collaboration with renowned inlay artist Harvey Leach. This one-of-a-kind model is adorned with original artwork that symbolizes opposite forces, in the form of a phoenix and a dragon, coming together in battle. The inlay incorporates a technique developed by Leach called “Smoke & Mirrors,” and it is used on this model to portray the dragon being neutralized in ice. The model also features an Engelmann spruce top with heavy bearclaw, Madagascar rosewood back and sides, a European flamed maple headplate and binding, and a unique maple back strip woven with pearl. The tuners are Schaller Gold GrandTune® open gear, and the label is signed by Chris Martin and Harvey Leach. Martin is making only one of these rare beauties but will take special orders, so visit your authorized Martin dealer to get your hands on one.
