New Opinion Dividing Guitar Day (Relax It’s Only A Finish)....
‘37 Authentic D-28 Aged.
Yep...aged. I was far from sold on the concept when they were first announced and to be honest the example that Martin put in their promo video looked way too relic’ed rather than aged. This one has virtually no artificial wear (you can only see it at all close up)
So “aged” in this case means the colour of the exceptionally thin lacquer and the fact that there isn’t a sharp edge on it anywhere. It feels and sounds gorgeous.
Torrefied Adirondack top and braces, Madi rosewood back and sides, hide glue construction.
Bass is very interesting as it kind thumps out when you hit the low strings but doesn't boom. Overall sound is nice and direct and dry.
