MARTIN D-28M ELVIS PRESLEY ADIRONDACK SPRUCE MADAGASCAR ROSEWOOD


Martin honors "The King" with the D-28M Elvis Presley limited edition. Limited to 175 guitars to mark C. F. Martin’s 175th anniversary, this limited edition model features Madagascar rosewood back and sides and a adirondack spruce top with scalloped adirondack spruce braces for a brilliant and powerful tone.

During his time, Elvis Presley's D-28 stood out with its unique tooled leather guitar cover that Charles Underwood created for him. This D-28 is outfitted with a tooled leather guitar cover that's based on Underwood's design, and comes with a special Geib hardshell case to house both the guitar and this special cover.

To deliver the signature Elvis "look," this D-28 features a mother of pearl and black pearl inlay on the ebony headstock modeled after a famous 1956 photograph of Elvis and his Martin guitar. Elvis's "TCB Lightning Bolt" logo, which originated from the "Taking Care of Business" pendants Elvis gave to his friends, is also inlay in mother of pearl on the heelcap.

Elvis' signature graces the 12th fret and the fingerboard is decorated with his signature star markers in select abalone to give a classy look fit for a king. Each Martin D-28M Elvis Presley Commemorative Edition guitar also bears two interior labels specially designed for this model and will certainly be a worthy addition to any collection.

This consigned guitar has been kept in excellent condition by its owner.
