Introducing the Martin D-28 CFM IV 55th Birthday Anniversary model - a guitar that stands out in its own right. Crafted in honour of Chris Martin's dedication to the Martin Guitar Company, this model echoes the specifications of a 1955 D-28. Commemorating Chris Martin's 55th birthday, only 55 of these guitars are in production, and we currently have one available, numbered 14/55.
Setting aside its historical context, this instrument shines a light on why the D-28 has remained a favourite for over 90 years. It responds with finesse to a gentle touch, offering smooth sustain even at lower volumes. On the flip side, it packs a punch with power and volume that will captivate flat pickers. The low end is robust yet clear, carving out its place in any musical arrangement.
While some guitars are pigeonholed into specific roles, the D-28 1955 CFM IV breaks free from such constraints. Playing it is a natural and enjoyable experience, as the guitar effortlessly produces beautiful tones.
