Perhaps the most revered vintage D-28s are the ones made by Martin in 1937 with forward shifted hand-scalloped X-bracing, Adirondack red spruce soundboard and a 1 3/4" neck width. This addition to Martin's Authentic series is a recreation of the original 1937 model offered with Madagascar rosewood back and sides.
Martin initially brought out the 1930s Authentic series D-28 with Brazilian Rosewood back & sides and a hefty price tag. Martin later brought out the 1937 D-28 model, now offered with Madagascar rosewood back and sides. These instruments are a terrific homage to the originals from 1937.
