Description

Don’t have the investment portfolio needed to afford an actual 1937 D-28? Try a spec-for-spec recreation from a master like John Greven. Gorgeous, straight-grained Brazilian Rosewood, Adirondack Spruce, V neck that rounds out as you approach the heel, yellow-toned Grained Ivoroid bindings and herringbone trim. All the I’s are dotted, the T’s crossed (with one extra T: this beauty comes with an adjustable truss rod).


The tone! This Greven 1937-D-28V has a bass response that goes down smooth, an articulate middle register with added note definition, and trebles that cut well but don’t bleed into the other strings. A primo example of a traditional-style Dreadnought.


John Greven’s got the chops, and we’ve got the guitar to prove it!


Alternative spellings: graven, grevan, d28, d28v, dreadnaught, dreadnot, dreadknot, martin

Always wanted a 1937 D-28 but $50,000 short? Try John Greven’s lightly-built version of the classic prewar Dread. Modern playability and reliability with vintage style. The set of Brazilian is rare and very straight!
