Martin Guitars' Custom Shop is one of the most revered guitar building workshops on the planet. Using the premium timbers available to Martin Guitars, and built by their most experienced luthiers, a Custom Shop instrument is the best the worlds oldest guitarmaker has to offer. For this example we've taken the classic D28 and added some special changes to make it the ultimate players guitar. The top braces are 1/4" in width as opposed to 5/16" on the standard guitar, this makes the top more responsive. To further enhance this, the braces have been scalloped, where select material is carved away to leave a highly responsive top. The premium Sitka Spruce top is matched to Indian Rosewood back and sides, with classic "28" Style appointments. A retro touch has been added, with open gear tuners and a blue ABS case, which is the same shade as the Martin cases from the 1970's. This is an amazing players' guitar.
