Martin D-28 Authentic 1937
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.
