Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 Aged

Sold

TME is proud to host one of the very limited "Aged" Martin D-28 Authentics! Construction-wise, it shares specs with a standard D-28 Authentic 1937 model -- but its exceptionally thin finish and carefully distressed aesthetic set it apart from the crowd. We haven't had another D-28A 1937 that sounds like this: it's wide open, with the woody thump and projection of a decades-old guitar. It's very light, and responds with ease, whether you're strumming, flatpicking or playing fingerstyle. Have a look at our photos for closeups of the finish work, and listen to our friend Eduardo Mercuri playing the guitar at the 'Video' tab. Priced with hard case from Martin.
