Martin D-28 (1934)

A first-year example of a classic model, this 1934 Martin D-28 has seen extensive restoration. It has the original Brazilian rosewood back and sides with a replacement spruce top with herringbone top trim. The ebony fingerboard has been refretted. Other replacements include an ebony bridge, maple bridge plate, and period correct Grover open gear tuners. This is a very good sounding guitar that has more potential if some work is done (see Details section below). It is in very good+ condition but sold AS-IS. More details...
