1937 D28 Guitar kit
This is a 1st quality kit from Blues Creek Guitars. It is based off the 1937 design of a D28. The kit is complete and will have all the parts included . Please read this list carefully and ask any question you feel you need to. I CAN ONLY SHIP TO A US ADDRESS.
This is BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD. I have a copy of the CITIES paperwork I received . This is the real deal. The back and sides are a perfect color and book match. The sides are bent , trimmed and contoured for a 14 fret Dred . The back is glued up and thicknessed with a 1937 style D 28 back strip. The braces for the back are the vintage style with the wider lower 3 and 4 brace. The top braces are scalloped 5/16 Sitka spruce , as what was used for this period. The inlay of the rosette is installed and the top thicknessed to 37 speck. This rosette is a bit different from the modern one and is based off pictures and measurements taken at the Martin Museum.
The neck will have a 2 way truss rod. I have included the set of fretwire. The Tuners are WAVERLEY. The fretboard inlay has been done. The headstock is Brazilian Rosewood. This is a HIGH QUALITY kit and is for the SERIOUS builder.
The binding is all included , you will get the top binding ( herringbone made to 1937 spec) The back is glued and all bracing plots are drawn out. I had the privilege to inspect the guitar in the Martin museum and a 1937 D28 that was owned by a good friend. , so this is as close to a $100,000.00 guitar as most of us will ever get.
The ebony fretboard is slotted and radiused and trimmed. The nut will be 1 3/4. The bridge is hand made to patterns for a 1937 through bridge. Bone Nut and Saddle are included. The pins are Bone Red Dot. There are dot markers. This time period only 1 dot is used on the side at the 12th fret.
The bracing is designed to be tucked.
