This is a stunning Martin Custom Shop D-28 styled acoustic, of which only 2 were made.  It features a perfectly aged  Sitka spruce top, giving it a vintage hue.  The hand-selected East Indian Rosewood back & sides are the perfect compliment to the top.   It also features front Forward Shifted DOM #1A bracing, Grained Ivoroid binding, a Black Ebony fretboard on a Mahogany neck, a Black Ebony 1930 Style bridge, and the the 1933 Authentic logo.

The low profile neck shape is a is extremely comfortable to play.  In terms of sound, this one is hard to beat.  We've done a few shootouts (against a Standard D-28, a Modern Deluxe D-28 and several others), and everytime this one wins based on projection, balance and overall tone.  

There isn't anything else like a Martin Custom Shop.  If you're looking for a dreadnaught with premium tonewoods, expertly crafted in America, this is the one for you.  Come experience it at Truetone Music or order online right here.
