I actually have the D-45 Custom It has hexagon fret inlays, reminiscent of the vintage D-45, but they're colorful abalone, not mother of pearl. In addition to the expected abalone binding on the top, back, sides, tone hole, and headstock, it also has abalone swirls on each side of the saddle, and an abalone vine pattern set into the pickguard. It has active Fishman electronics, so you can play it on stage, and gold hardware. This guitar has always been m holy grail. I never thought I would buy another guitar. As it turned out, I bought a $10,000 limited edition Taylor Fall LTD 2012 PS14CE about 6 months later, such is the obsession of guitarists, but the pair are both beautiful and have completely different tone profiles.
