n tribute to Elvis Presley on the 30th anniversary of his passing also, coincidentally, the 175th anniversary of the Martin Guitar Company Martin is excited to offer two exceptional commemorative edition guitars fit for the King and his legion of fans. Sporting exclusive appointments throughout, the Martin D-28M and D-28 Elvis Presley Commemorative Editions capture Elvis unique charisma. Limited to just 175 guitars to mark C. F. Martins 175th anniversary, the D-28M Elvis Presley Commemorative Limited Edition features rare Madagascar rosewood back and sides (which closely resembles Brazilian rosewood), and an Adirondack spruce top with 5/16 scalloped Adirondack spruce braces for brilliant, powerful tone. Fine black and white inlay lines highlight the Style 28 soundhole rosette and purfling, the latter accented by elegant grained ivoroid binding.

The Elvis motif of these Dreadnoughts begins on the polished black ebony headstock just above the nut, where the silhouette of the King and his Martin modeled after a famous 1956 photograph are inlaid in mother of pearl and black pearl. Small pearl bordered abalone star position marker inlays at the 5th, 7th (two), 9th, 15th, and 17th frets on the fingerboard flank Elvis signature at the 12th fret. The black Micarta heel cap 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 common to these beautiful guitars include a 1 11/16 neck with diamond volute 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.

In keeping with their black and white palette, these Limited Editions come with white bridge and end pins topped with black dots, and a polished and beveled black pickguard. The unique tooled leather guitar cover originally created by Charles Underwood made Elvis D-28 instantly recognizable. Therefore, the D-28M Elvis Presley Commemorative Limited Edition is outfitted with a tooled leather guitar cover based upon Charles design and is delivered in a special oversized vintage Geib style hardshell case to accommodate the guitar and cover. The D-28 Elvis Presley Commemorative Special Edition may be ordered without the leather guitar cover in a vintage Geib style hardshell case, or with the cover at an extra cost, an upgrade that also includes the oversized case. Factory-installed electronics (those Martin offers without side controls) can be ordered as an extra-cost option. Left-handed instruments may be ordered at no additional cost, though tooling on the leather guitar cover cannot be reversed.

Each D-28M Elvis Presley Commemorative Edition guitar bears two interior labels specially designed for these models. The primary interior label for the D-28M Elvis Presley is numbered in sequence with the total number of guitars in the edition, while the primary label for the D-28 Elvis Presley is numbered in sequence without total: both include a holographic, official Elvis Presley Signature sticker of authenticity.
