Martin_Vintage_1949_D-28_Acoustic_Guitar_26VINTAGE - 1949 Martin D-28 acoustic guitar serial number 112847 with Brazilian rosewood. We got this very cool old guitar from the original owner who bought the guitar in 1950 at Mook Music in Rochester NY. This guitar is loud and sounds AMAZING! When we got the guitar it needed a little work so as a Martin dealer we sent it back to Martin where they did their magic and sent back a thing of beauty! This guitar is now in excellent condition and is a graet exsample of a Martin D-28 with Brazilian back and side. A true piece of Amaricana and a real collectors item!

Comes with the original chipboard case, and a brand new Martin hardshell case for shipping!

Martin_DC-28E_Andy_Babiuks_Fab_Gear_1NEW - This Dreadnought, acoustic-electric cutaway takes advantage of the full tonal qualities of East Indian rosewood and pairs it with a solid Sitka spruce top. A black ebony fingerboard and bridge with complementing black pickguard complete this beautiful model. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Martin introduces the new Fishman® Aura® VT Enhance™ electronics, the perfect addition to elevate the legendary Martin tone you’ve come to love and expect. D-28 style instruments have been played by many musical legends including Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and Marcus Mumford.

Martin added an onboard Fishman Aura VT Enhance system to the Martin DC-28E so that you’ll be sure to get great plugged-in tone. Everyone at this year's NAMM was constantly raving about how well this system captures every nuance of your performance. It’s easy to use, too. Thanks to its Fishman electronics, you’ll love the amplified tone of your Martin DC-28E! You just can’t beat the sound of solid spruce and solid genuine rosewood, and the Martin DC-28E spares no expense on its tonewoods. You’ll love the deep sound of the Martin DC-28E’s East Indian rosewood back and sides, and they look fantastic. What’s more, the DC-28E is topped with Sitka spruce, adding rich overtones to an already superb tone. When you imagine what an acoustic guitar is supposed to sound like, this is it!

Martin_DCPA1_Performing_Artist_Electric_Acoustic_Fab_GearNEW - Martin DCPA1 Plus Performing Artist Electric Acoustic. Like so many classic Martins from years past, the Performing Artist series is crafted using nothing but the finest tonewoods, with solid Sitka spruce for the top and solid East Indian rosewood making up the back and sides. Add to this a satin-finished neck, a unique neck carve, and a convenient cutaway, and you've got a guitar that's downright inspiring to play. Martin takes the acoustic/electric on an evolutionary journey, equipping these axes with the Fishman F1 Aura. Far more than a simple pickup system, the F1 Aura combines high-end acoustic sound images, an onboard digital tuner, a compressor, a phase control, an EQ, and anti-feedback control. In short, it's everything that you need to be in complete control of your onstage sound. Coupled with the tonewood selection, this is truly a huge step forward for amplified acoustic guitar. This is the Performing Artist DCPA1 Plus, which boasts the classic Martin dreadnought sound.
