Martin D-28 Rich Robinson #98

Serial Number: 2681873
Weight: 4 lbs 7 oz

Calling all Black Crowes fans! Martin is proud to bring you the Rich Robinson Custom Signature Edition D-28. This model is a guitar player’s dream, and it is the first model that Martin has ever made as a visual and sonic representation of an artist’s personal instrument. 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 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. The model includes a specially designed label signed by Robinson and numbered in sequence.
