Martin (used, 2002) HD28 Acoustic Guitar

Tag No 32-4218 Used

#850749, with added strap button in shoulder, ebony tuning buttons and bridge pins, in excellent condition with the original hard shell case.

The HD-28 is the mainstay of the C F Martin rosewood dreadnought collection. The mainstay used to be the plain old D-28 but when, back in 1976, Martin decided to provide the scalloped bracing under the top that they had last offered in 1944, and, in addition, the herringbone wood marquetry top trim that they had last offered in January 1947, the public embraced these changes back to the wartime standard. The top, of Sitka spruce, is well on its way to becoming more orangy in color, as Sitka does, the back and sides, of East Indian rosewood is straight-grained and dignified. The sides are bound in white Boltaron, the back has an additional ring of white-black purfling. The backstripe is wooden zipper parquetry; the East Indian overlain headstock has the slightly rounded corners, the gold puffy modern logo and hosts six C F Martin logo sealed back, ebony tuners with large buttons. The unbound ebony fingerboard sports 8 mother of pearl dotmarkers in 6 positions; the pickguard is tortoise pattern plastic; the bridge is carved ebony, belly-down, with a saddle that is rolled for compensation (some saddles will do anything to get paid) and six ebony bridge pins and end pin.  Both the original metal tuning buttons and bridge pins remain inside the case pocket.  

The condition is fine, showing only 5-6 small nicks on the back.   On the back of the guitar, in the middle (both in length and width), next to the centerstrip, there is a 2" incipient crack in the finish which requires no glue or repair.

The Martin HD-28 is a colossally useful instrument, and a staple to the acoustic community.   * NOW ON HOLD*  Our Price is $1,899.00.
