List price

If you’re looking for a new guitar that looks and sounds like you’ve been playing it for 80 years, you have just found your holy grail of guitars. The Aged version of the D-28 Authentic 1937 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, but we didn’t stop there. We’ve now taken 50 of these amazing guitars and methodically, painstakingly distressed them, inside and out, in all the right places. Learn more about the aging process here. The result is a tactile, visual, and auditory experience that will transport you all the way back to the 1930s. And we know you’re going to like it there. Stock is limited.
