Limited to 175 exquisite guitars, the D-28M Elvis Presley most closely resembles Elvis’1955 D-28 acoustic, fitted with a custom leather guitar cover with his name across the lower bout. The unique tooled leather cover, originally created by Charles Underwood, made Elvis’ D-28 guitar instantly recognizable. It is delivered in a special oversized vintage Geib style hardshell case to accommodate the dreadnaught and cover.
The Limited Edition Elvis Presley guitar features rare Madagascar rosewood back and sides (which closely resembles Brazilian rosewood) and an Adirondack spruce top with 5/16" scalloped Adirondack braces for brilliant, powerful tone. The Elvis motif of this dreadnought includes a silhouette of the King and his Martin modeled after a famous 1956 photograph — inlaid in the polished black ebony headplate utilizing mother of pearl and black pearl. Small pearl-bordered abalone star position markers and Elvis’ signature are inlaid into the black ebony fingerboard. The black Micarta heelcap features his "TCB Lightning Bolt" logo — a design that originated with the "Taking Care Of Business" pendants Elvis gave to friends — inlaid in mother of pearl.
Classic 1950s-inspired Martin appointments include a 1-11/16" neck with diamond valoute carved from genuine mahogany and satin finished, Grover deluxe nickel Kluson™ tuners with small oval metal buttons, the old style Martin decal logo on the headstock, black ebony fingerboard and belly bridge, genuine bone nut and saddle and a flawless polished gloss lacquer finish with vintage-appropriate light amber aging toner on the top.
