A Lefty 000-28K with Spot-on Vintage Tone!

Few of us will ever get a chance to play - let alone own - a 1920s Martin guitar, which is what makes the left-handed Martin 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS acoustic guitar such a special instrument. Modeled after an immaculate 000-28K from Martin's Museum collection, the 000-28K Authentic 1921 brings you the look, feel, and tone of a classic Martin (thanks to their new VTS aging system), complete with period-correct touches like the vintage-style bracing pattern and a hand-shaped neck without a truss rod. And with a solid koa top, back, and sides, the tone of the left-handed 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS is pure Martin goodness.

Martin 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS Left-handed Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Woods aged to perfection with Martin's VTS
  • Gorgeous figured koa tonewoods
  • Auditorium body style
Woods aged to perfection with Martin's VTS

Tone connoisseurs are always in search of the perfect guitar tone, and in the acoustic world one of the most-loved tones is that of a vintage Martin. We're talking guitar that have aged over 50 years. Martin Guitars recently perfected a unique way of torrefying the top woods and braces of their guitars to achieve the sound of an aged and broken-in Martin. The Vintage Tone System (VTS) lets Martin age the woods to a specific age/time period without the typical change in color of the wood from the torrefaction process. A special Vintage Gloss Finish is the hand applied to give the guitar the coloring of a vintage instrument. Martin's VTS series guitars not only look like vintage guitars, they also have that sought-after sound.

Gorgeous figured koa tonewoods

You'll immediately see that the lefty Martin 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS is a special guitar, with its highly-figured Hawaiian koa top, back, and sides and vintage appointments. Koa offers a unique voice somewhere between the warmth of mahogany and the brightness of maple. Not only does the Martin 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS sound great, it also looks amazing. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - you'll love every aspect of the Martin 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS acoustic guitar!

Auditorium body style

The forward, balanced tone of the 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS comes from its Auditorium body style. This body style provides excellent projection and focus, perfect for competing with a banjo (which was a common combination in the '20s). The Auditorium body style also gives you well-balanced tone, making the 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS perfect for recording in your studio.

Martin 000-28K Authentic 1921 VTS Left-handed Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Left-handed acoustic guitar based on the pre-WWII 000-28 model from the Martin Museum collection
  • Solid, highly-figured koa top, back, and sides for impeccable tone that will enhance with age
  • Vintage Tone System (VTS) ages the woods to a specific age/time period
