You are looking at a Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 Acoustic Guitar, serial number 2085026. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Since its introduction, the D-28 has been one of C.F. Martin's most widely recognized and sought-after dreadnought models, but the D-28s made in 1937 are by far the most coveted of all. In 1937, the D-28s employed Adirondack red spruce tops, forward shifted hand-scalloped X-bracing and a slightly wider 1-3/4" neck. This striking Marquis Series Authentic replica is based on a beautiful-sounding original 1937 D-28 model made with Madagascar rosewood back & sides. Employing features such as Martin's exclusive Vintage Tone System for the top and braces along with a hide glue construction, the D-28 Authentic 1937 brings you as close as you can possibly get to achieving that broken-in, vintage Dreadnought sound.

The Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 boasts an extensive array of appointments that hold true to the original such as an Authentic 1937 neck carve, a solid/diamond headstock with an accurate 1937 taper, an authentic-style belly bridge with a long bone saddle, a bone nut, and a set of nickel open-gear tuners with butterbean knobs. Showcasing all original adornments, the D-28 Authentic 1937 boasts a Style 28 rosette, a Bold Herringbone top inlay, an authentic Style 28 Zig-Zag back purfling, grained ivoroid binding/heelcap, a period-correct 1937 grained ivoroid narrow endpiece, diamonds & squares long pattern fingerboard inlays and a delmar tortoise color pickguard. Finally, a vintage gloss finish gives this D-28 Authentic 1937 a well-preserved vintage aesthetic. Includes hardshell case.
