Not many of these wonderful instruments come up for sale, however we have a pre-owned Martin 000-28K Authentic 1921 – Koa Guitar, and in excellent condition.

Based upon a pristine 1921 000-28K from the Martin Museum collection, this slotted head 12-fret is a completely faithful recreation of the original, featuring flamed Hawaiian Koa top, back and sides, hide glue construction and a hand shaped neck without a truss rod. Martin’s Vintage Tone System (VTS) is employed for the bracing.

The Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The 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 women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
