This Martin D-28 John Lennon Acoustic Guitar is a must own for any John Lennon / Beatles fan!
This beautiful dreadnought features a solid Sitka spruce top, East Indian Rosewood back and sides, high-performance neck taper, and stunning mother-of-pearl inlays.
The Sitka spruce top has been treated with Martin's Vintage Tone System. 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 craftswomen to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
Like all Martin's this Martin D-28 John Lennon is has a big bold tone with a vibrant high end, crisp midrange, and a deep, resonant low end. The perfect guitar for strumming and flat picking. Finger pickers might find the tone a little too loose for their taste.
The low oval neck features Martin's high-performance neck taper making this a very easy and comfortable to play guitar. You can play it for hours without any hand fatigue.
Top it off with all the cool adornments from the inlaid peace sign on the back, John Lennon's famous self-portrait on the headstock and the John Lennon themed inlays on the neck.
This is truly a special tribute honoring a legendary writer and performer.
