Perhaps the most revered vintage D-28s are the ones created in 1937 with forward shifted hand-scalloped X-bracing, Adirondack red spruce soundboard and a 1 3/4" neck width. This addition to the Authentic series is a recreation of the original 1937 model offered with Madagascar rosewood back and sides.
The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is
based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time
machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the
top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen
and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a
vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved
for vintage instruments.
