The future is here—and it’s Authentic. New for 2021, these Martin guitars deliver the most sought-after features from the Authentic Series and answer prayers from the enthusiast community. Regarded as the cornerstone of performance, Martin’s highly prized 1937 models set the benchmark for generations of guitars that followed. They remain sought by collectors and coveted by enthusiasts. This is the era where the stars aligned.
The all-new 1937 inspired 28-Style Authentic Collection rewards players with the sonic superiority of Martin’s Authentic Series and the everyday practicality of a workhorse guitar. Time-tested features such as Authentic bracing as well as hide glue and cloth strip construction continue the tradition of acoustic excellence—now enhanced with a thinner top for commanding volume and the broadest possible dynamic range in this family of rosewood instruments. An adjustable truss rod gives enthusiasts the day-in, day-out reliability of an instrument that travels well AND responds to seasonal adjustments as it matures.
