This Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS Aged Acoustic Guitar is what an acoustic guitar should sound like! It really does sound like an 80-year-old guitar and is my favorite guitar in the shop!
The minute I picked up this guitar and strummed a chord I knew this guitar was something special. Vibrant and resonant. The hide glue construction allows the sound to flow freely through the body and neck. You can really feel it against your body and in your hands. Strum a chord and it just explodes off this guitar. Very loud with incredible definition. Really fills a room. Almost sounds 3D. Flat picked the individual notes really snap, crackle and pop. Fingerstyle players will love how it reacts to your touch. Incredible overtones and harmonics.
The neck is classic Martin. Excellent shape with just the right amount of thickness. A very easy to play neck.
The relic'ing job is very light and looks authentic.
