Martin D-28 Authentic 1937
All of our Martin D-28 Authentic (1937) guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
Here to remind you why you fell in love with Martin in the first place, the new Authentics are constructed the old way - with hide glue, throughout, and historically-accurate detailing confirmed by using a CAT scan machine located at the Smithsonian Institute. 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 without a doubt one of Martin's most powerful, fullest sounding dreadnaughts in current production. This addition to the Authentic series is a recreation of the original 1937 model offered with Madagascar rosewood back and sides. It's projective voice, sharp attack and wonderful bass response make this guitar a flatpicker's dream. They simply don't make them like this anymore.
Maury's Music thoroughly inspects every guitar before it ships. We can even set it up to your specs upon request! Simply choose between "Factory Setup" or "Custom Setup" when placing your order. Click here for more details.
