This Martin D-28 1954 is the real thing. A players dream – it sounds like nothing you have ever heard before. It is one of the cleanest Vintage guitars we have seen!
From its introduction in 1931, the C F Martin D-28 has been a successful, reliable design used by countless guitarists in performance and recordings.
The C F Martin D-28 shares a basic body design with other D or Dreadnought series bodies, and features a Spruce top paired with Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. At the time this guitar was built, the combination was Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood.
This is a post-war guitar, and its construction details indicate that dating. Pre-war guitars had Herringbone purfling around the top and elsewhere.
It’s a treat to play a guitar like this. The tone is rich and full with the typical Rosewood warmth, while the Spruce top provides sparkle and clarity even when played hard. It sounds like a dream and many professional players who tried this guitar stated, that it is the best sounding Martin, they ever saw.
This Martin D-28 1954 plays well and has had a neck reset. The neck is straight and the action low. It is in a beautiful and original condition. The center seam below the bridge has been reglued in some areas.
It comes with the original case.
