MartinD-28 Brazilian, Special Edition Acoustic Guita

Actual Guitar photo (Kelly Clifton) Broadway location

This limited edition D-28 is crafted from pre-CITES Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top and forward-shifted scalloped bracing, a combination known to produce a loud and full dynamic range of tone. The D-28 Brazilian model features herringbone top trim and aging toner for that vintage look right out of the case. It is constructed using hide glue, a method that is traditionally found only on our Authentic Series instruments. A low profile neck and Martin strings provide superior comfort and playability, coupled with vintage appointments like antique white binding and Waverly nickel tuners. The D-28 Brazilian model features an interior label signed by Chris Martin, and a laser engraved Custom Shop Logo with model designation on the front block. A rare and collectable gem of an instrument, the D-28 Brazilian is limited to just 50 instruments.
