Martin Custom Shop D-28 1937 (Stage 1 Aging)

The all-new Custom Shop D-28 1937 rewards players with the sonic superiority of Martin’s Authentic Series and the everyday practicality of a workhorse guitar. Regarded as the cornerstone of performance, Martin’s highly prized 1937 models set the benchmark for generations of instruments that followed. This guitar sports time-tested features like Authentic bracing, hide glue and cloth strip construction, and an adjustable truss rod which gives enthusiasts the day-in, day-out reliability of an instrument that travels well AND responds to seasonal adjustments as it matures.

Lacking the heavy wear and tear of an instrument that’s seen considerable use, the “Stage 1” finish with light cracking and crazing is inspired by those rare vintage instruments that were simply kept in the case and tucked away for decades. Martin’s “Stage 1″finish bears the marks of time but not the battle scars common on many vintage re-creations.
