Martin Guitars Custom Shop D-28

Make'n Music Exclusive "Snowflake" Limited Run!

Martin HD-28V acoustic guitar with Adirondack Spruce and Madagascar Rosewood

Inspired by true vintage Martin D-28 specs!

Pre-War / Golden Era top w/ Hide Glue Construction

This just in! Martin will be more than doubling the price of Madagascar Rosewood as it has become increasingly difficult to source! Take this opportunity to snap up an incredible guitar at a fantastic price. MADAGASCAR ROSEWOOD IS THE NEXT BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD. This could be your last chance to get Madagascar Rosewood at this price.

''Snowflake'' is the latest Make'n Music exclusive, Limited Run from the Martin Custom Shop! Like all of our exclusive models, this Custom Shop D-28 Limited Edition is designed for the ultimate in tone and playability- All while delivering the ABSOLUTE BEST VALUE. I painstakingly went back and forth with the Martin Custom Shop over every single spec in order to get the best instruments at the best possible price.

This ''Snowflake'' Limited Run is a Custom Shop HD-28V with Madagascar Rosewood back and sides, an Adirondack Spruce top w/Hide Glue construction, as well as an understatedly elegant 28-style cosmetic package with pre-war Golden Era tone.

Why is it called ''Snowflake''? Check the back of the headstock.

Features and Specs of the Custom Shop D-28 Madagascar / Adirondack from Martin Guitars:

  • Premium Grade Adirondack Spruce Top
  • Forward Shifted, Scalloped Adirondack bracing
  • Hide Glue top construction
  • Madagascar Rosewood back and sides
  • Grained Ivoroid binding  & accouterments
  • Modified "V" neck profile
  • Long diamond volute
  • Rounded Corners 50's style headstock
  • Large, Old-Style logo
  • Diamond & Squares short pattern inlay
  • Waverly Tuners w/ Ivoroid Vintage buttons
  • 1&11/16" Bone nut
  • 2&1/8" string spacing
  • 16" radius, Bone drop-in saddle
  • Non-Catalyzed Gloss finish (body)
  • Aging Toner on the top
  • Non-Catalyzed Satin finish (neck)
  • Geib Case

These guitars are loud and incredible sounding! The TONE is RICH, WARM & FULL with plenty of MID-RANGE PUNCH and SWEET TOP-END. Currently, there are two models in the current Martin lineup that would compete with the features of these Custom Shop D-28 1954 Limited Edition guitars. The first is the Authentic Series D-28 1941 Museum Edition which retails for $14,999. The second is the Limited Edition D-28 1955 CFM IV which streets for $hundreds more than this guitar and does not even have the Adirondack top & bracing. Which one is the best deal? You make the call.
