Those who compete in the Final Round, but do not win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, will receive one Paige Capo and a beautiful Wall Plaque commemorating their Top 5 placement in the competition.
A remake of the famous Collings Clarence White model, this Dreadnought has mahogany back and sides, Adirondack spruce top, custom neck and bridge, tortoise fingerboard binding, ebony headstock overlay with Collings custom “Wheat” inlay, large sound hole and CW (Dalmation) pickguard.
Crafted to produce the tone and volume that the dreadnought guitar was originally designed to achieve. The D-MA is based on a 1937 Herringbone Dreadnought originally owned by the late Charles Sawtelle. Made with Mahogany sides and back, Adirondack Spruce top, advanced X brace placement, hand graduated top thickness, pre-war hand carved scalloped braces, nitro-cellulose lacquer finishes and time-tested design features such as dovetail neck joints, embellished with a custom inlay and comes with a Harptone® case.
The D-28 Modern Deluxe is a new take on Martin Vintage. This guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction that gives it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The look is unlike anything in our production line to date with European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Some ultra-modern features include Liquidmetal bridge pins with redots and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume. And, we’ve included electronic pickups and a new neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. This guitar is anything but standard.
