Authentic 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.

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 000-28

Martin's 000-28 model fits the sweet spot between compact playing size and sound. The body size and deep cutaways make it comfortable for a variety of playing styles and positions, without compromising on a level of clarity and projection that lends itself to everything from big chord strumming to delicate fingerpicking.
