Description

With its robust, full-bodied tone and massive projection, the Martin D-28 has become one of the most widely used acoustic guitars of all time, favored by legendary performers like Hank Williams, Johhny Cash, and Neil Young. The all-new D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS pays tribute to Martin's early D-28s, and it's an outstanding acoustic that perfectly captures the look, sound, and feel of a genuine late '30s Martin. If you've been searching for a phenomenal vintage-inspired acoustic, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better guitar than this outstanding Martin.

The D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS features a Guatemalan rosewood body capped with a solid Adirondack spruce top, giving it a rich, complex tone with full lows, smooth mids, and crisp, articulate highs. Its mahogany neck feels incredible, courtesy of its period-correct Authentic 1937 profile and standard taper, and its ebony fingerboard plays with a silky-smooth response. Not only does it sound and play great, but this acoustic is a true stunner - from its Vintage Gloss finish to its abalone inlays, the D-28 Authentic 1937 is an eye-catching guitar that commands attention.

The magic behind this model's sound is in the Vintage Tone System (VTS) that's used to age the top and braces, giving it a rich, authentic tone that makes it sound nearly indistinguishable from an actual '30s D-28. Combined with its hide glue construction, tortoiseshell pickguard, and numerous other historically accurate appointments, this acoustic is the closest thing you can get to a '37 D-28 fresh off the line.

Complete with a hardshell case for safe transport, the D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS is excellent for players and collectors seeking a premium Martin dreadnought dripping with vintage charm.
