Let's take a closer look at our incredible Martin 000-28K 1921 Authentic. 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 new Vintage Tone System (VTS) is employed for the bracing.

The new 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. And don't forget about the Madagascan Rosewood head plate.

We have only ever had one of these guitars before and it sold in a matter of days. A true masterpiece. $8,995 or take it home for $131 per week. http://www.acousticcentre.com.au/products/martin-00028k-koa-authentic-1921-model
