The all-new 1937 inspired 28-Style Authentic Collection rewards players with the sonic superiority of Martin’s Authentic Series and the everyday practicality of a workhorse guitar. Time-tested features such as Authentic bracing as well as hide glue and cloth strip construction continue the tradition of acoustic excellence—now enhanced with a thinner top for commanding volume and the broadest possible dynamic range in this family of rosewood instruments. An adjustable truss rod gives enthusiasts the day-in, day-out reliability of an instrument that travels well AND responds to seasonal adjustments as it matures.

Choose Your Finish and Aging
Visually, this Authentic Customs take advantage of our proprietary Vintage Low Gloss process with a selection of craft-quality finishes. Models are available in natural or vintage Ambertone burst finishes AND your preference of our proprietary low-gloss or the new “Stage 1” lightly aged finishes. Lacking the heavy wear and tear of an instrument that’s seen considerable use, the “Stage 1” finish with light cracking and crazing is inspired by those rare vintage instruments that were simply kept in the case and tucked away for decades. Our "Stage 1" finish bears the marks of time but not the battle scars common on many vintage re-creations.
