You are looking at a Martin Custom Shop Dreadnought East Indian Rosewood Acoustic Guitar, serial number 1737764. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

This Martin Custom Shop Dreadnought East Indian Rosewood Acoustic Guitar is a part of our Custom Shop Martin Collection, which consists of some of the most remarkable acoustic guitars available today. To present you with an instrument that's truly unique, every aspect of each Custom Built Martin has been carefully selected by our Sam Ash Guitar Specialists—from the perfect pairing of tonewoods all the way down to the fine appointments and materials used. Combine all of that with the exceptional craftsmanship of the luthiers and builders at the Martin Custom Shop and you've got yourself a premium quality, one-of-a-kind Custom Martin.

Done in the great tradition of C.F Martin's "battleship" class Dreadnought, this Custom Shop D-28 mixes styles old and new. The stunning premium bearclaw Sitka top is about as boastful as the subdued 28 style gets. Its soundboard is supported by forward-shifted Sitka scalloped bracing for a huge, thundering tone. Premium East Indian rosewood back and sides excite all frequencies, and look magnificent while doing it. Searching for a “cannonball?” Then look no further. Deep rich bass, and enough power to preform alongside any acoustic instrument. Modern “Belly bridge” with compensated saddle for superb intonation. Diamond and squares inlay and Golden Era logo round out the vintage look on this beauty.

To protect this finely crafted instrument, a hardshell case is included with your purchase of this Martin Custom Shop Dreadnought East Indian Rosewood Acoustic Guitar.
