Classic Martin acoustic guitar with rosewood back and sides, spruce top and ebony fingerboard and bridge.

The Special 28 Style Adirondack VTS Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar from Martin combines premium tonewoods and proprietary technology to recreate the cherished sound of acoustic guitars from the 1930s. Featuring an Adirondack spruce top that has been aged using Martin's Vintage Tone System, this guitar provides clear highs, focused mids and a controlled low end. East Indian rosewood back and sides enhance the balanced tone and resonance. Standard 5/16" X bracing and vintage-inspired appointments complete the authentic feel.

Vintage Tone System Ages the Top to Perfection

Martin's revolutionary Vintage Tone System uses a proprietary process to age the Adirondack spruce top, allowing it to sound like an 80-year-old instrument. The aged top provides an open, articulate tone with complex overtones that improve over time. Musicians seeking a guitar with instant vintage appeal will appreciate the rich, nuanced sound made possible by this innovative technology.

Premium Tonewoods for Rich, Balanced Tone

Adirondack spruce is renowned for its musical properties and when combined with East Indian rosewood, it produces a tone that is clear yet warm, focused yet resonant. The rosewood back and sides enhance volume and projection, creating an instrument well suited to a variety of musical styles. Standard 5/16" X bracing provides structural support while allowing the top to vibrate freely.

Vintage-Inspired Appointments Complete the Look

Antique white binding, a black pickguard and other vintage-style details give this guitar a classic appearance reminiscent of Martin's Golden Era. While the construction and electronics are thoroughly modern, these appointments recreate the visual style of highly sought-after acoustic guitars from the 1930s.

A Modern Feel With Vintage Soul

The Special 28 Style Adirondack VTS Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar provides exceptional tone and playability, with a neck profile and string spacing comfortable for contemporary playing styles. Musicians seeking a modern instrument with authentic vintage sound will appreciate the fusion of old and new in this premium acoustic guitar.
