Introducing the Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS Aged Acoustic Guitar, the latest offering from Martin’s Authentic Series. This exceptional guitar combines modern craftsmanship with vintage inspired elements to produce a sound and feel that will transport you back to the Golden Era of guitar making.
Crafted with an Adirondack Spruce top and Guatemalan Rosewood back and sides, the D-28 Authentic 1937 features a Genuine Mahogany neck with an Ebony fingerboard and 1937 Diamonds & Squares Long Pattern inlays. The forward shifted, hand-scalloped X-bracing provides the ideal support for the top, and the hide glue construction ensures the guitar’s stability and resonance over time.
A key component in achieving Golden Era tone from a new instrument is Martin's Vintage Tone System (VTS), which ages the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin. The VTS enables Martin’s craftsmen to recreate the particular tones that were previously only found in vintage instruments. And with the Aged finish and the tortoise pattern pickguard, the D-28 Authentic 1937 looks and sounds like an instrument that has been played for 80 years. The guitar's Authentic D-14 fret body shape, solid headstock with 1937 taper and diamond, and grained ivoroid binding all contribute to its vintage aesthetic.
In summary, the Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS Aged Acoustic Guitar is a modern masterpiece that captures the essence of vintage guitars. With its exceptional craftsmanship and vintage elements, this guitar will provide you with a tactile, visual, and auditory experience that transports you back to the 1930s. Experience the magic of the Golden Era of guitar making with the D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS Aged Acoustic Guitar.
