Though not as rare or prized as pre-war Martin Dreadnoughts, D-28s from the '60s remain outstanding acoustic instruments. The folk music explosion of the early '60s brought a gradual increase in Martin production throughout the decade, but quality remained extremely stable. It wasn't until 1969 that Martin made the switch to East Indian Rosewood, so '64 D-28s still features Brazilian Rosewood for their back and sides. 

Years of Production: 1931 - present 

Specific to this Era: By 1964, the D-28 included Grover Rotomatic tuners, tortoiseshell celluloid pickguards (until 1966), and non-herringbone white binding.
