2007 Martin 0-45S Stephen Stills

Beautiful MINT Martin 0-45S Stephen Stills. One owner since brand new. Beautiful Madagascar Rosewood back and sides. The 45-stylings are pure class and quite costly to complete. This is a nice small-body Martin flattop with great prospects for collectability. As time goes on 45-style Martin’s are getting expensive and this grade of Madagascar Rosewood is getting very hard to find. This guitar was collector-owned and is in beautiful condition. The guitar comes with the original case and the paperwork as shown. Here is your chance to get a prime example.

Additional Information from Martin:

The Martin 0-45S Stephen Stills Signature Edition acoustic guitar brings back a beautiful and fascinating Martin instrument! A reproduction of Stephen Stills’s own vintage 0-45, the 0-45S Stephen Stills Signature Edition gives you an unbeatable combination of distinctive tone, gorgeous looks, and uncompromising materials. It includes a solid Adirondack spruce top, beautiful solid Madagascar rosewood back and sides, a modified V neck, and a blend of Style 42 and Style 45 appointments. A label signed by C.F. Martin IV and Stephen Stills is also onboard the 0-45S Stephen Stills Signature Edition guitar.

Before the rise of the 14-fret guitar (14 frets clear of the neck), 12-fret instruments were the order of the day. Now, they’re making a bit of a comeback as players get the opportunity to hear their tonality for themselves. Since the upper bout of a 12-fret instrument is somewhat more elongated than that of a 14-fret guitar, you get more resonance in that area. This results in a classic sound with a distinctive touch. The Martin 0-45S Stephen Stills Signature Edition Ltd makes the most of this great-sounding vintage style design.

The beautiful, spectacular-sounding 0-45S Stephen Stills Signature Edition features a 12-fret “0” design, superb solid tonewoods throughout, back and sides crafted from beautiful Madagascar rosewood, an Adirondack spruce top (just like the original), a short-scale modified V-shaped neck with an elongated diamond volute and slotted square, and a tapered headstock carved from genuine mahogany.
