Martin D-28 Authentic 1931 w/ VTS
Anyone can call their guitar "Vintage", but it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to actually have that word mean something. Lucky for us, Martin seems to have taken this word to heart when the designed their D-28 Authentic 1931 with VTS. Based off of CAT Scans of Martin's own museum quality antique instruments, the D-28 Authentic 1931 with VTS is without a doubt as close as you can come to capturing the sound and quality of these Golden Era instruments without the actual us of a time machine. Designed using period correct measurements and bracing and built with as close to period correct materials as is still possible in our day and age. Then, to top it off, they have implimented their new VTS system on their top woods, using a proprietary method to age the wood before it ever touches the guitar, making it sound as though it's been broken in for decades before it's even been strummed. The Martin Authentic series stands as proof that when Martin say's their guitar is Vintage they truly mean it.
