Combining the artful eye of its vintage-inspired Authentic series with workhorse-worthy designs for the modern player, the new Custom Shop D-28 1937 and 000-28 1937 acoustic guitars feature Authentic bracing, cloth strip and hide glue construction, an adjustable truss rod for lifelong reliability, and a choice between Vintage Low Gloss Natural and Ambertone finishes, each with optional Stage 1 Aging.

New from the Martin Custom Shop, Stage 1 Aging adds all the tell-tale finish crackle and crazing of vintage models. It also improves the feel, adding rolled fingerboards, rounded frets ends, and a thinner Adirondack Spruce top for commanding volume and a broad dynamic range.
