A reproduction of the first actual D-28, made in 1931, which Martin recently purchased from the Richard Gere auction. 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. Based on a 1931 D-28 in our museum, this guitar features Madagascar rosewood back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, and authentic 1931 D-28 appointments, right down to the neck barrel and heel.
This model is a solid connect for Martin: they nailed it! Having owned an original 1933 12-fret D-28, I can tell you that this new one is truly an Authentic. Nothing else in the world sounds like these; if you haven't played one, you have a special treat awaiting.
