D-28 Authentic 1937
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 is an Authentic series 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.
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.
