    Description

    Graham Nash's Woodstock 1969 Martin D-45 Acoustic Guitar, Serial # 249131.




    Own a big piece of music history on the 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock festival. This is the 1969 Martin D-45 acoustic guitar Graham played at that legendary festival. Very cool and all original featuring Brazilian rosewood. This guitar has no issues and has minimal play wear.

    Graham paid for the guitar using some of the advance Crosby, Stills, and Nash received from their first recording contract with Atlantic Records.

    "I felt so great when I could afford to buy this."

    "We each bought D-45s from Martin. That was 1969, and so right before Woodstock, we bought these guitars and took them to Woodstock."

    No official photos or film were made of the portion Graham did with Stephen Stills, David Crosby, and Neil Young at Woodstock, per Young's wish. This was CSNY's second show.

    "That's why a lot of people don't even think Neil was at Woodstock, but he was. There's photographs of me playing my black Epiphone, which if anybody out there knows where it is, I'd love to know myself."

    COAs from Graham Nash and Heritage Auctions.
