Martin’s Authentic series is a time portal into the past. Using a CAT scan machine located at the Smithsonian Institute, Martin has been able to not only recreate the appealing visual aesthetics of their renowned vintage instruments, but also the key tonal properties that were previously only available on the vintage market. This D-28 Authentic 1931 is based on a specific 1931 D-28 in Martin’s collection and features Madagascar Rosewood back and sides, an Adirondack Spruce top, a fine herringbone purfling, a dovetail neck joint, and even a full hide glue construction throughout. Combined, this guitar contains all of the authentic appointments and tonal qualities that one would expect from such a historical company.
