Wouldn't this be the greatest buy in the world? I ordered one just to see what would happen and they told me that it shipped on 2/15/10. After about a week I emailed them and they confirmed that the packed had shipped on the 15th. Today 3/8 I received another email saying that it must have been lost in the mail and I got my refund.
Idon't know what kind of a game they are playing, but there are no winner.
I was really hoping that one out a thousand chances i would get the unit. Wishful thinking.
They still have 93 available. Best of luck

This is a sham. They dont even have them available. They need to correct their postings.
So don't bother order one, because in bout a day you will get an email saying sorry but we dont have it.
Not worth the time or effort.

I would beware here. The price is a tad low and Martin is strict about selling new guitars only to reputable dealers. E.g., Musician's Friends has them available for $8249, and MF is commonly close to the lowest market price. This price is surely possible if the dealer has a good volume of the guitars. This is not such a dealer. This is likely a used guitar that was not played —perhaps someone in over their head or perhaps buyer's remorse. They probably have not filled out the warranty card and think that this means the guitar can be sold as new. Nope. The original buyer is the original buyer -no way around this. Martin keeps careful tabs on this. Martin has the best warranty in the business and they back it up. (Unlike Santa Cruz, for example).

If this is a person whom simply did not want that guitar after purchase, I recommend simple honesty. It is still a pristine Martin (perhaps). Yes, without the famous lifetime warranty, but the present owner should not loose more than 20% if the guitar is pristine and has not been sitting in a case for more than 2 - 3 months.

For any buyer of a D-45, I, like Fred Martin, would suggest that you save money on pearl and buy a model 28 or 21 of some type! As Fred wrote Jimmie Rodgers, 'Pearl will not make the guitar sound or play better...'. Psst; The Collings Company in TX builds them BETTER than Martin did in the 1930s!

Warning: I have seen guitars dried out beyond repair in as little as 6 months. (depends upon location and treatment). Likewise, I have seen Florida destroy a guitar in 3 months if it has not been kept properly in the case.

Regardless, I recommend buying such an item in person. They usually run in the neighbourhood of $8,500 new. No two Martin D-45s are the same, just as no two pieces of spruce are the same. Plus each player has his style and is looking for something unique to fit his preference.
