At A Glance:

The Custom Shop D-28 1937 Ambertone Aged delivers a stunning balance of the sonic superiority of Martin's Authentic series with the reliable performance of a true workhorse guitar. The D-28 is rightly one of the classics - big body, big sound, and big tone that's backed some of the greatest singers and songwriters of all time. Finished here with all its stunning appointments, you just won't want to put it down! As part of the Martin Custom Shop Expert 28-Style Collection, it sports classic features like Authentic bracing, hide glue and cloth strip construction, paired with modern developments like the adjustable truss rod, and finished with Martin's new Stage 1 light ageing, giving you an instrument with all the hallmarks of a decades old instrument that's been well taken care of. This model is exclusive to Martin Custom Shop Expert dealers, a designation which guitarguitar have proudly earned from Martin.

Authentic Era Features

Authentic Era Features

Martin acoustics from 1937 are among the most highly prized out there, and practically set the benchmark for the generations of instruments that followed. This series of 1937 inspired models seeks to recreate all the stunning features and specs of that era, from authentic thickness fingerboard to cloth strip construction and era correct X-Bracing, built with the keen eye and exacting modern standards of the Martin Custom Shop.

Stage 1 Light Ageing

Stage 1 Light Ageing

Martin's new Stage 1 Light Ageing process recreates the effects of ageing on an instrument that's spent the decades living in its case, well loved but well taken care of. The result is a finish that sports the light crazing and cracking of such an instrument, without the battle scars common to many vintage finish re-creations.

Martin D28

Martin D-28

Martin's D-28 is a lauded classic for a reason. The big bodied Dreadnought's loud sound with big bass response has lent itself to a host of styles and players, and has been the box of choice for everyone from Hank Williams to Neil Young to Tony Rice.
