Martin 000-28S (Custom) (1960)


This great sounding Martin 000-28s was custom guitar ordered through a New York City music store in 1960. It features a spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, and a 12-fret mahogany neck. The long scale, 000 body, wide-ish neck, scalloped braces, plus 58 years of aging make it no surprise that this guitar sounds as good as it does, with a loud, balanced sound to please finger and flat-pickers alike. The entire body has been oversprayed, and it has numerous repaired cracks (see Details section below), but overall this acoustic guitar is in very good condition. More details...
