C. F. Martin & Co / HD28 / 1979 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Only introduced in 1976, finding a 70’s HD28 is quite a rarity. If you consider the Martin D28 to be the classic Spruce / Rosewood dreadnought, then the HD28 is a step above this - the Herringbone binding adding a very distinctive touch of class, and the scalopped bracing allowing the top to resonate more. So excellent clarity and definition, with greater attack and sustain. The guitar works well for all styles, from heavy strumming to flatpicking and fingerstyle. At 41 years old, the tone has matured really well, and the guitar is in very good condition, quite faded, and has a very comfortable feeling neck. It has a Fishman Matrix pickup fitted, and comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
