Martin presented at NAMM 2014 two new additions to its Authentic Series.
The D-28 Authentic 1937 is a recreation of a 1937 Martin D-28 museum guitar. It features a forward shifted hand-scalloped X-bracing, Adirondack red spruce soundboard, Madagascar rosewood back and sides, a 1 3/4" neck width, hide glue construction, and authentic 1937 D-28 neck barrel, heel, diamond, head taper, and fingerboard inlays. Aging toner was used to give the neck and body an authentic finish. MSRP is $8,499.
For its part, the 000–28K Authentic 1921 features a slotted head 12-fret neck, heavily flamed Hawaiian koa top, back and sides, hide glue construction and a hand-shaped neck without a truss rod. The neck barrel, heel, diamond, head taper, and slots are all replicated from a 1921 museum model. The tuning machines are replicas of the original golden age nickel tuners. As on the D-28, aging toner was used on the entire body and neck to give it an authentic finish. MSRP is $7,499.
