Mint condition Martin D-28 Authentic 1939 acoustic guitar. Built in 2018, still in immaculate, like-new shape.

Thanks to its Adirondack top and Madagascar rosewood back and sides, the D-28 Authentic 1937 has a huge, powerful tone--we think it's one of the loudest, fullest Martin guitars we've heard in a long time!

In addition to the amazing voice, we're also big fans of the "Vintage Gloss" finish. It's somewhere between a satin and high gloss finish and has gorgeous aged look that really captures the sheen of an older guitar's finish.

This guitar is in pristine, unplayed condition. Body is free of nicks, dings, scratches, or play wear.  Frets at 100%.

Includes original hardshell case, also in perfect condition.

Martin's Description

Perhaps the most revered vintage D-28s are the ones created in 1937 with forward shifted hand-scalloped X-bracing, Adirondack red spruce soundboard and a 1 3/4" neck width. This addition to the Authentic series is a recreation of the original 1937 model offered with Madagascar rosewood back and sides. Martin’s new Vintage Tone System (VTS) is employed for the top and braces.

The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
