This Martin D-28 1957 is the real thing. A players dream – it sounds really very good!
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.
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 fine Spruce top provides sparkle and clarity even when played hard. It sounds like a dream … we had quite a lot of these guitars before and know how a good D-28 should sound.
This Martin D-28 1957 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 guitar has a nice and professional refinish plus light blackburst to the heel of the neck. The tuners have been replaced with peeriod correct Grovers.
There are some smaller well repaired cracks to the sides.
It comes with the original Martin case.
