The sides and back, as well as the head plate and heel cap, are made of Brazilian rosewood (Hakaranda), a rare and top-quality material. The top is made of high-grade Sitka spruce with heavy bearclaw, and the top brace is also made of high-grade Adirondack spruce... It is not difficult to imagine that this is a premium instrument that produces a superb sound, but what really draws attention to this model is the The most noteworthy feature of this model is its artistic inlays.
The "Tree of Life" pattern, which is applied to the fingerboard, bridge, and pickguard in jet-black ebony, was designed exclusively for this D-50 Deluxe. At first glance, it appears to be the same as the regular D-50 Deluxe, but upon closer inspection, all of the ivy has been trimmed to make the "Tree of Life" appear even more gorgeous. The "Martin & Co." logo is also trimmed with an Avalon inlay. The herringbone pearls running around the body purfling and rosette are also truly magnificent, and are more than enough to tighten the overall impression of the body. The one-pointed "Tree of Life" on each corner of the sides and back also expresses the prestige of the instrument.
Martin Guitar has released many gorgeous Brazilian rosewood models with inlays, such as the D-45 DX CFM released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of C.F. Martin I, and the D-45 Deluxe (in stock at our store), which has been produced in limited editions every year since 1993. The D-50 Deluxe, limited to 50 pieces worldwide, is the pinnacle of the lineup.
We managed to ask a collector living in Canada to sell us this item. We hope you will enjoy this superb item.
