Northeast Music Center is a proud Martin Custom Shop expert and we are excited to help introduce the New Custom Shop Authentic 1937 D-28 to our line of Custom Shop Martin guitars! This 1937 D-28 is a true recalling to the Golden Era of Martin manufacturing and presents a perfect example of what made this model so beloved in all styles of music. Modern day Martin fanatics will notice the neck shape to be a bit larger than today's reimagined series, but still attaining comfortability and ease of performance.
From the Manufacturer:
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. With the all-new Custom Shop D-28 1937 the stars have aligned again.
Visually, this Model takes advantage of our proprietary Vintage Low Gloss process with a selection of craft-quality finishes. It is available in a natural or vintage Ambertone burst finish AND your preference of our proprietary low-gloss or the new Stage 1 lightly aged finish. 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. Our Stage 1 finish bears the marks of time but not the battle scars common on many vintage re-creations.
