C. F. Martin & Co / D-28 / 1957 / Guitar
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. 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.
