On reverb.  This instrument is a forgery.  Do not buy it.

How can you tell?  Among other things, note the spliced neck heel and peghead, and the cheap rosewood bridge.  The trim does not look right, and the abalone purfling looks like it might be a synthetic imitation.

Note that the description says "Martin D-45S Style . . ."
