Constructed using hide glue, this guitar features an Adirondack spruce top, Madagascar rosewood back and sides and authentic 1937 D-28 appointments, right down to the neck barrel, heel, diamond, head taper, and fingerboard inlays. The wider fingerboard is representative of a 1937 model. Aging toner is used on the entire body and neck to give it that authentic finish.
