Built as close to the original 1955 D-28 as possible.
When Martin designed the Limited Edition CFM IV 1955 D-28 acoustic guitar, they took great care to replicate the original 1955 specs as closely as possible. Premium straight-grained Madagascar Rosewood backs approximate the look and tone of the original Brazilian Rosewood version. The top is high-grade Sitka Spruce, and braced in the original rear-shifted, non-scalloped pattern. The D-28 guitar's soundhole rosette is the Style-28 "4- 9-5" black & white lines configuration. A polished and beveled Delmar tortoise-colored pickguard, with period-correct squared bottom, is carefully fitted on top of the polished lacquer finish. The Martin D-28's body is bound in grained ivoroid and Boltaron; the two-piece back is joined with the traditional "checkered" marquetry backstrip, all in the 28 style. The 14-fret, modified "V" neck is carved of Mahogany with the classic diamond volute. Rounded edges are typical of mid-50s Martin headstocks, the result of gradual wearing down of the template over years of use. For authenticity, Martin duplicated this along with a period-correct C. F. Martin & Co. decal, and Kluson nickel-plated, "waffle" covered tuners with oval buttons.
