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 Adirondack Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood.
This is a post-war guitar, and its construction details indicate that. Pre-war guitars had Herringbone purfling around the top and elsewhere.
