The guitars we have been getting from the Martin Custom Shop have been spectacular and this one is par for the course. We souped up a D-28 with a slew of custom features. An Italian Alpine Spruce top for clear, crisp tone is paired with a wonderful set of red/ orange Cocobolo for punch, volume and richness. We added vintage specs like the old guitars with Adirondack forward shifted ‘golden era’ style scalloped braces (adding that extra pop that lightens the bottom bout and allows more vibration and pronounced low end) and a genuine Mahogany neck with Authentic stamp and diamond volute with Gold open geared Grover tuners. We topped it off with an Abalone 45 style marquis rosette, Abalone Pearl ‘alternate torch’ fretboard inlay and CF MARTIN block inlayed in the Cocobolo headstock overlay. Black Ebony was used for the bindings as well, matching the fretboard and bridge plus a Genuine Mahogany one piece neck with Authentic stamp.
This is a great, versatile dreadnought. A powerhouse flatpicker and strummer, but can be used for delicate sweet songs as well. Includes deluxe Martin hardshell case and lifetime warranty.
