C. F. Martin & Co / HD28 Grand Marquis / 1989 / Natural / Guitar For Sale

Just when you think you’ve played all the great D28’s, an absolute belter comes along. This is my first Grand Marquis model, and it’s spectacular….. 1989 is the first incarnation of the Grand Marquis made in extremely limited numbers. The guitar has very high end features in a classic, but not too over the top finish. There’s an Adirondack Spruce top over highly figured Indian Rosewood back and sides. The body has herringbone rosette and purfling, tortoise pickguard and body binding, and a hand signed C.F. Martin label. The fingerboard and bridge are beautifully inlaid with abalone style 45 snowflake inlays and the headstock features a block inlay with engraved tuners. This Grand Marquis is a luxurious and sophisticated sounding version of an HD-28. There’s real power coming from the Adirondack top, very resonant with great bass response, but the ability to handle delicate playing with subtlety and nuance – a true all rounder. The guitar is in very good condition, with just a few light surface dings. It has an active under saddle pickup fitted and comes in a non original hard case.

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.
