Based upon a pristine 1921 000-28K from the Martin Museum collection, the slotted head Authentic Series 1921 000-28K VTS Auditorium Acoustic Guitar is a completely faithful recreation of the original, featuring flamed Hawaiian koa top, back and sides, hide glue construction and a hand-shaped neck without a truss rod. Martin's new Vintage Tone System (VTS) is employed for the bracing.
The Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin's craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
