C. F. Martin & Co / D-28 / 1973 / Guitar
Martin D-28 1973 - a players grade vintage Martin with an amazing sound.
The Martin D-28 is without doubt the most famous acoustic guitar ever. From the war years until today the D-28 has been the main guitar for strummers and pickers in Country, Bluegrass, Rockabilly and all kinds of Rock performers including Jimmy Page, Brad Paisley, Bob Dylan, John Frusciante and Noel Gallagher just to name a few.
The D-28 is the prime example of a 14-fret dreadnought and the construction basis for most dreadnoughts on the market. The combination of solid spruce and rosewood is a favorite among recording technicians, as the soundscape is naturally balanced with tight basses and present trebles and it is suitable for many modern styles.
This guitar offered here is from the 70’s and has the incomparable vintage sound, which in addition to the huge basses brings this great warm nuance in the tone that can only be found on guitars with matured woods. It has an incredibly huge and room filling sound. It is a real pleasure to play this guitar.
It is in players grade condition and we sell it far below the market price to reflect this. Many small cracks have been repaired. The finish of the top has been sanded. The bridge and the pickguard are newer ones. A pickup was mounted and later removed ... Really a player that was loved and played and not given much attention to the right treatment.
On the other hand, the guitar has received a neck reset and plays like butter, with a low action and a straight neck. Everything is stable and the guitar is ready to go.
The guitar comes with a newer Martin case.
