Dwight Yoakum

We showed you pictures of the launch of C.F. Martin’s new Dwight Yoakam DD28 Signature Edition at #NAMM2017, but it was such a cool event that we wanted to add some more photos. Dwight was so inspired by the guitar that he broke into song, singing a rowdy rendition of Elvis’ first single, “That’s All Right,” to remind everyone of how important the Martin dreadnought was to music history, as Elvis had played a D-18 on the original Sun recording. The DD28 is based on Dwight’s favorite 1972 D-28 — “The first Martin I could afford!” he said, and a guitar he played throughout his career. Two versions of the DD28 are being offered: the standard model using regular modern glues and a more-expensive one with vintage-style hide glues.
