OVERVIEW

One of Martin's favorites given a special torrefaction process to give you a more broken-in look and tone right out the box.

This exclusive Custom HD-28 VTS acoustic dreadnought couples classic sound with modern playability and craftsmanship. This guitar was designed to target the highly-collectible vintage sound and tone of Martin’s Golden Era, the 1930s. As many of you know, this time period produced the finest steel string acoustic guitars in the world. Martin guitars from the 1930s are considered by many to be a benchmark for the acoustic steel string guitar. Today, if you could find one, you would pay anywhere from $100K to $400K.

However, with Martin’s revolutionary Vintage Tone System, a proprietary temperature aging process, they are able to target the sound of their vintage acoustic guitars within a decade. Martin has honed this process by benchmarking some of the finest examples of their 182-year history, found in their Nazareth, PA museum. Once they have aged the top to the correct moisture content and look of the period, it is ready to be placed on only the finest custom and authentic models.

With the custom HD-28 VTS, they selected a premium-grade of Sitka spruce for the top, and temperature age it to target the sound of the 1930s. They then combined this VTS top with the precision and playability of a modern HD-28 to create a dreadnought guitar that has an extraordinary sound, with the playability of modern precision and technology. The HD-28 VTS has a clear, defined treble and midrange tone, with a very balanced, punchy bottom end. .

USA-made in Nazareth, PA.
Comes with 640 molded case.
