Martin D-45 Fire & Ice
All of our Martin D-45 Fire & Ice guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
This one of a kind model is adorned with original artwork by Harvey Leach that signifies opposite forces, in the form of a Phoenix and a Dragon, coming together in battle. The inlay incorporates a technique developed by Mr. 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 bear claw, 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 GranTune open gear and the label is signed by Chris Martin and Harvey Leach. Martin is making only one of these rare beauties. Contact us to get your hands on one.

Please note: Adding a guitar pickup or strap button to this model will disqualify it from our return policy and therefore it cannot be returned after these uprades are added. Upgrade prices below include installation; these fees are non-refundable. Also, we cannot ship Mammoth Ivory or Walrus Ivory products to California, Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon or Washington due to legislation in those states.
