This is a gorgeous Martin D28 Authentic 1931 - the sound and play feel surpass its classy, iconic looks. The torrefied Adirondack Spruce gives it a great tonal spectrum with shimmering highs, a nice midrange and a punchy bottom end. The guitar projects really clearly and easily fills a large room with sound, perfect for the bluegrass or folk picker. It is in near mint condition with very faint surface marks. Comes with the original hardshell case, as pictured.
Martin based the D-28 Authentic 1931 acoustic guitar on a real 1931 D-28 selected from Martin's museum. In fact, the original was the first guitar ever stamped with "D-28"! This highly collectible D-28 Authentic 1931 boasts period correct "28" Authentic style appointments, hide glue construction, and Authentic 1931 neck barrel, heel, diamond, head taper, and slots. And because its made from Madagascar rosewood with an Adirondack spruce top, the Martin D-28 Authentic 1931 acoustic guitar sounds just like a classic Martin should.
