First of all, PLEASE WATCH MY WELL DETAILED, 4K, LONG REVIEW / DEMO VIDEO about this beauty: https://youtu.be/Gw1-l7KWdJY

If you after an industry standard acoustic guitar, you simply can’t go wrong with a Martin D-28, this is the guitar that most of the guitar gurus would suggest! The most popular and sought after Martin guitar!

Making its debut in 1931, this D-28 dreadnought became hugely popular with bluegrass players and later with rockabilly, folk, and pop artists. Elvis, McCartney, Clapton, Bob Dylan…thousands of great songs were recorded with a Martin D-28!

The D-28 is the “face of Martin guitars and is the most widely imitated acoustic in history. The D-28 gets its tone and power from TOP QUALITY, PROPERLY SELECTED solid woods, traditional Martin bracing style, and large dreadnought body shape. It’s tone woods include a solid Sitka spruce top, solid rosewood sides and back, solid mahogany neck with striped ebony fretboard, and striped ebony bridge.
Other features include white body binding, natural finish top, black pick guard, 1-11/16″ nut width, standard 25.4” scale length, low profile neck shape, small maple bridge plate, checkered (Style 28) back inlay strip, black & white Style 28 rosette, white/black multi-ply body binding, chrome enclosed gears, and NITROCELLULOSE  (for better sound, feel and great ageing) finish.

This is a killer sounding AND PLAYING, slightly aged, 13 years old D-28. All notes are harmonically rich, it’s got a very good projection and a balanced tone. Also, as I said and firstly noticed in the video the setup and playability is second to none! It’s like playing on an electric guitar. Such a low action without buzzing!

Cosmetically, it’s a very well looked after guitar (just check the HD pictures), however there are a few little marks due to light studio playing and natural ageing related (slight nitro checking) on it but nothing to worry about especially on a 13 years old nitro-finished guitar!

There is NO buckle rash on the back (which are typical on these).

It’s an unmolested D28, usually the second hand D28s got a pick up installed with extra holes drilled (some professionally, most of them not really…), or got marks on the sound hole caused by sound hole pickups or many of these have got marks on the neck by capos…fortunately this guitar DOES NOT HAVE any of these…

It comes with its original Martin hard case.
