Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 Aged

Sold

Description

This "Aged" Martin D-28 Authentic 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. Priced with hard case from Martin. 

Please note: video sample shows a previously sold example of this model.
