sku: D28AGEDLTD
A special aging process, including an ultra-thin finish and hand aging, mimics not just the look, but also the feel of a well-played 1937 D-28. Combined with Martin's Authentic Series style construction, the result is a powerhouse of a guitar that feels like an old friend. Other features include a VTS (torrified/heat aged) Adirondack spruce top, Madagascar rosewood back and sides, forward-shifted bracing, hide glue construction, a non-adjustable truss rod, and period correct appointments.   More Details...
