D-18 and D-28 Authentic 1937 Aged
The constant drive to improve, brought us to the new Authentic Aged version of the 1937 D- 18 and 1937 D-28. Small changes have been made that will affect the look and feel immensely. The feel of a true vintage guitar with all the stability of a new instrument.
VTS Adirondack top, complete hide glue construction, hand scalloped bracing, perfectly aged nitro cellulose finish, all attributes that will make you fall in love with this Authentic Aged Martin.
Hide Glue makes the most direct connection between the wooden parts. The VTS treatment of the top ages the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin.
The result is a tactile, visual, and auditory experience that will transport you all the way back to the 1930s.
This exquisite 000-14 fret acoustic guitar is crafted with gorgeous Guatemalan rosewood,
and the top and its bracing are made from FSC® Certified European spruce. The top also
features a 1933 ambertone finish. Other features include stunning European flamed maple
binding throughout, a compensated bone saddle, bone bridge pins with abalone dots on an
ebony bridge, and an ebony fingerboard with Foden-style abalone inlay. The look is
completed with gold open-gear tuners and custom headplate inlay on Guatemalan
rosewood. The model also comes with a Vintage Deluxe neck, which is slightly asymmetrical
for comfort and playability. Each model includes a label signed by Martin CEO Thomas
Ripsam and numbered in sequence. This model is limited to 100 instruments, and they'll be
sure to sell out fast.
