(USED) Just in on consignment and in excellent condition, we have a late model D28 Authentic 1937, one that utilizes Martin’s VTS torrefaction technology to achieve its vintage sound. It sounds very good indeed, with warm, pillowy bass, sparkly trebles and plenty of volume.
The Martin Vintage Tone System is a process wherein the top is thermally cured (or torrefied) to not only dry the wood, but to flash out the volatiles within it, crystalizing the resins… this imbues the finished guitar with a sound not unlike a true vintage version, with no “tightness” or “newness” to play off. It’s ready to go, right out of the case. The top on this guitar has an especially wide grain pattern, and the VTS process has turned it a golden brown.
The instrument has very nicely quartered Madagascar rosewood back and sides, and was built with true-to-period techniques and hot hide glue. The neck is a full-bodied mod-V with a vintage taper, the nut measures 1 3/4″ and the string spacing is 2 5/16″ at the cut-through saddle.
Open-back Waverly tuners and Martin’s “Vintage Gloss” (lower sheen) finish complete the Authentic look.
Comes with original hardshell case.
