At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to an Authorized Dealer of C.F. Martin guitars. Martin’s Vintage Series strives to recreate the prewar specifications with the advantages of modern guitar building. The HD-28V features a solid Sitka Spruce with a light caramel aging toner and solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides. It is set up with a strong modified V neck with a volute and a 1-3/4″ nut width, so it feels like a classic prewar Herringbone. Like the ’30s models, it has a cutthrough saddles, but unlike the prewar classics, it has a modern two-way acting truss rod, which allows for precise action adjustment. As for tone, the HD-28V sounds like it should- big, fat and cutting with shimmering high end and powerful bass. Its forward-shifted, scalloped bracing recreates the rich dynamics of the prewar herringbone dreadnought. This one can be a cannon when you push it, but its tone is sweet across the register. Please call (970) 728-9592 or e-mail for an in-hand description.
