D-28 Rich Robinson Signature Edition Dreadnought Acoustic Item Description
Rich Robinson and Black Crowes fans, this one is for you! This is the Martin Special Edition D-28 Rich Robinson signature edition! This is the very first time that Martin has ever made a signature guitar that's an actual visual and sonic representation of an artist's personal guitar. Each one is aged, and individually signed and numbered in sequence by Robinson on the inside label. This example is #9. The instrument that served as its inspiration is a 1954 D-28 that was handed down from Robinson’s father, who played it on stage at the Grand Ole Opry; as a traveling musician with the Hillbilly Highway; and in his folk band, The Appalachians, during the 1950s and ‘60s. After inheriting his father’s guitar, Robinson used it to write most of the original Black Crowes’ songs from the band’s studio albums. This soulful representation of that beloved guitar is crafted with Aged satin-finished East Indian rosewood for the back and sides and an Aged Sitka spruce top that is finished with a very thin vintage gloss. It also features rearward-shifted non-scalloped bracing, which offers a very balanced tone and added volume. It includes some 1950s style vintage build characteristics, like Martin’s signature dovetail neck joint, authentic hide glue construction, an ebony fingerboard and bridge, and Aged nickel tuners. Another custom feature requested by Robinson is a bridge with the wings slightly softened for comfort.
Includes: Hardshell Case and Paperwork
