Product Description

Not only have we taken the the HD-28 to a new level with the VTS Sitka Spruce Top, but we have sourced stunning Wild Grain East Indian Rosewood.  The Wild Grain Rosewood sounds bold and rich and provides an exotic look to this stunning Custom Shop Model.

You will receive the exact Martin Custom Shop HD-28 VTS shown in this listing.  Serial number: 2211858

Featuring a spectacular VTS Sitka Spruce Top, this Martin Custom Shop HD-28 VTS Sitka sounds incredible.  The Vintage Tone System (VTS) is described by Martin Guitars as:

"The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and craftswomen to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments."

The Martin Custom Shop HD-28 VTS Sitka Spruce shares all of the traditional specifications of the HD-28 while adding the spectacular VTS Sitka Spruce Top with Gloss Natural Finish.
