Martin Marquis D-28 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Sunburst

Martin Marquis D-28 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Sunburst
Price - $4,399.00

Crafted to evoke the same powerful tone and sonorous projection as a pre-WWII D-28, the Martin D-28 Marquis Acoustic Guitar differs only by using the much less scarce, and therefore more affordable, Indian rosewood instead of Brazilian rosewood. Using only premium-grade solid Indian rosewood for the back and sides and a solid Adirondack spruce top, the Marquis Guitar delivers powerful sounds with scalloped Adirondack spruce braces and forward-shifted X-bracing.

A special aging toner gives the wood a vintage countenance.The list of historically accurate details, nearly overwhelming and totally exhaustive, captures the authentic spirit of the Martin D-28: mahogany blocks/dovetail neck joint construction, slot-through saddle, herringbone binding, neck dart, zipper back marquetry, ivoroid binding, herringbone top trim, Waverly butterbean tuners, and old-style wood fiber rosette.

The Martin D-28 Marquis also has a beveled and polished tortoise pickguard; ebony bridge with long saddle; modified V-shaped neck; ebony fretboard (1-3/4" nut, 25-2/5" scale) with diamond and square inlays; and fossil ivory nut, saddle, and bridgepins (with black dots).The Martin D-28 Marquis Acoustic Guitar is a lovingly crafted Indian rosewood version of the discontinued D-28GE.

After Ditson went out of business in the early 1930s, Martin introduced the D-1 and D-2 dreadnoughts for standard playing style that would soon become Martins iconic D-18 and D-28 models. Over the past 100 years, the Martin dreadnought has helped define what an acoustic guitar can and should be, and subsequently, it has become onSolid Adirondack spruce topScalloped 5/16'' Golden Era solid Adirondack spruce bracesForward-shifted X-bracingSolid East Indian rosewood backSitka Golden Era back bracesHD Zig Zag back purflingSolid East Indian rosewood sidesOld-style wood fiber inlay rosette; Style 28Grained ivoroid endpieceBlack/white wood fiber endpiece inlayGrained ivoroid bindingFine herringbone top inlayBlack/white fiber back inlayGenuine mahogany neckMahogany blocks/dovetail neck joint constructionModified V neck shapeFossilized ivory nutSolid/long diamond/tapered headstock shapeSolid Indian rosewood headplateGrained ivoroid heelcapSolid black ebony fingerboard20 frets25-2/5" scaleNeck/body joint at 14th fret1-3/4'' nut widthDiamonds and squares long pattern fretboard inlaysSolid black ebony bridge1930s style belly - long saddle bridge2-5/16'' string spacing at bridge16'
