The Martin D-28 Authentic Guitar is a hand-constructed model that draws its inspiration from a stellar 1937 example and employs the use of hide glue as well as vintage "T" bar neck reinforcement. Other significant features on the Martin guitar include an Adirondack red spruce top with circa 1937 sculpted Adirondack bracing, a nitrate tortoise colored pickguard, Golden Era Style 28 diamonds and squares as fingerboard position markers, grained ivoroid bindings, black ebony fingerboard and bridge, fossil ivory nut and saddle, antique white bridge pins and a vintage style case.
