    When replicating a 1937 Martin D-28 , where does one begin with a rare and highly coveted historical relic like this one? When it came time to make an exacting reproduction of the king of guitars, the fine folks at C.F. Martin happened to have one residing in their own museum, which was made in 1937. And it provided a wealth of information so that it could be reborn as the D-28 Authentic 1937. But the good folks didn’t stop there!  The Aged version of the D-28 Authentic 1937 Aged includes all of the goodness that comes with Martin’s Authentic Series instruments, like hide glue construction and hand-scalloped X bracing. Plus, the Vintage Tone System (VTS) that ages the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin. The ultra thin aged finish is also important for the tone and looks of this beauty., and then some. 50 of these amazing guitars were methodically, painstakingly distressed, inside and out, in all the right places.

    The result is a tactile, visual, and auditory experience that will transport you all the way back to the 1930s. A unique guitar in every way! From a player’s point of view this is the ultimate Dreadnought! Very well balanced, deep bass tones combined with cripy and solid mids. And then the high notes. Rarely have I heard these fat and sweet tones coming from the upper regions. Combined with the easy to play neck this is a tone machine extraordinaire!
