Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 VTSWe have something really unique going on with the Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS right now. Normally, we recieve a trickle of Martin's Authentic series guitars throughout the year, but at the moment we have FOUR of the just released Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS series dreadnoughts in stock. What does this mean for you? Well, you have your pick of the litter when it comes to finding that perfect Authentic series guitar. We've been play testing them all week and there's no clear favorite among the staff, which is a testiment to Martin's new VTS process that these guitars are all such great players. This is your chance to bring home that vintage sound you've been chasing, while getting a brand new guitar straight out of Nazareth. Give us a call or stop by the store today to get a run down on this rare opportunity. Read more about the Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 VTS.
