Martin 2022 D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS AGED

All of our Martin 2022 D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS AGED guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.

An 85+ year old Martin D-28 from 1937 is considered to be the holy grail of acoustic guitars, and is priced like it on the vintage instrument market. The Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS AGED is a spectacular recreation of 1937 D-28 with a more accurate 1937 Dreadnought body shape than ever before, along with vintage Martin detailing, and genuine vintage Martin tone unachievable by anyone anywhere else, for a fraction of the cost of the original. Luscious Guatemalan rosewood offers magnificent bass response and classic rosewood overtones. The Adirondack spruce top sounds as open and ringing as a pre-war D-28 thanks to Martin’s proprietary Vintage Tone System® treatment that is applied to the top and its painstakingly reproduced 1937 tucked and scalloped, forward-shifted bracing. Traditional hide glue construction and the amazing hand-crafted aging are applied to the entire instrument to ensure you are playing, hear, and feeling the closest thing to a 1937 D-28 imaginable.

If you’re looking for a new guitar that looks and sounds like you’ve been playing it for 80 years, you have just found your holy grail of guitars. 1937 was an excellent year for guitars, with a perfect storm of craftsmanship, innovation, and materials. The Aged version of the D-28 Authentic 1937 includes all of the goodness that comes with Martin’s Authentic Series instruments, like hide glue construction and hand-scalloped X-bracing. Plus, it adds the VINTAGE TONE SYSTEM® (VTS) that ages the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin. Martin’s craftspeople can recreate the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar and reproduce the particular tones previously reserved for vintage instruments. Now Martin has reintroduced a more accurate body profile based on dreadnought shapes from the early Golden Era of Martin’s history. The result is a tactile, visual, and auditory experience that will transport you all the way back to the 1930s. And we know you’re going to like it there.
