Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 Used (2015)

$5,500.00

Near mint condition Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 made in 2015. Huge sounding powerhouse dreadnought that is a replica of the vintage guitar in Martin’s Museum. This instrument is copied using CT scans at the Smithsonian Institute to reproduce the same build.

Perhaps the most revered vintage D-28s are the ones created in 1937 with forward shifted hand-scalloped X-bracing, Adirondack red spruce soundboard and a 1 3/4″ neck width. This addition to the Authentic series is a recreation of the original 1937 model offered with Madagascar rosewood back and sides. Martin’s Vintage Tone System (VTS) is employed for the top and braces and is built competely with Hide Glue, like they did in the old days.

Includes original hardshell case and lifetime warranty.

Martin VTS

The Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.

Includes original hardshell case and lifetime warranty.
