Along with their dreadnought siblings, Martin's new Custom Authentic 000-28 models are among the most dynamic, exciting instruments to come out of Nazareth, PA in many years, rivaling top-shelf offerings from even our favorite small-shop makers. This guitar features Martin's "Stage 1" aging over a gorgeous Ambertone finish. Hanging on our Martin wall, you'd be forgiven for assuming this was, indeed, a decades-old vintage guitar. Thanks to an Adirondack spruce top paired with premium East Indian rosewood, Authentic bracing pattern, and hide-glue construction throughout, the tone is dry, powerful, with a uncommon, three-dimensional depth and sophistication. The neck tapers to a generous "V" in the upper reaches, contributing to the lengthy sustain, and completing the pre-war feel of this standout small body.
Includes Martin's 5-ply Harptone case.
