D-28 Backstrip

The "checkered" wood marquetry strip as used on the back center seam of style-28 Martin guitars after World War II.

This distinctive backstrip is laminated with black fiber and natural unstained "white" wood. We make these thicker so that they fit perfectly between bookmatched back halves. It's easy to trim them flush for a seamless look.

Approximate dimensions:
0.175" wide x 0.157" thick x 23" long (4.44mm x 4mm x 584mm)

TIP: Dimensions are approximate. For proper fit, the wood backstrip should be measured directly before joining the back halves on your instrument.

Also available: Zipper Backstrip, the classic pre-war Martin style-28 pattern.
