D28 Marquis Sunburst SOLD
Solid Adirondack Spruce • Solid East Indian Rosewood Back/Sides
SKU: D28MARQUIS List:$5,549.00.... WMC:$4,299.00
Crafted to evoke the same powerful tone and sonorous projection as a pre-WWII D-28, the Martin D-28 Marquis Acoustic Guitar differs only by using the much less scarce, and therefore more affordable, Indian rosewood instead of Brazilian rosewood. Using only premium-grade solid Indian rosewood for the back and sides and a solid Adirondack spruce top, the Marquis Guitar delivers powerful sounds with scalloped Adirondack spruce braces and forward-shifted X-bracing.
