Among the last few hundred Brazilian rosewood D-28s produced by Martin during the 1960s, this example is all original except for a slightly oversized pickguard and the addition of an early undersaddle pickup. We bought the guitar from the original owner, a coffeehouse performer who retired it in favor of a new instrument with modern electronics. At some point in the early 1980s, the guitar developed the typical center-seam top split, which was cleated by a Prescott, Arizona luthier and has remained stable ever since. At the same time, the large pickguard was added to cover wear caused by the prior owner’s aggressive approach to strumming (hey, it was the ‘80s—relicing was not yet fashionable!). Over its lifetime, this guitar has experienced a few dings and scratches that we have attempted to document in the photos, but no abuse or other mishaps. 1-11/16th-inch nut width, solid sitka Spruce top, nicely figured Brazilian rosewood back and sides. A responsive guitar that produces ample volume with a soft attack, while allowing a player to dig in for extra tonal richness and projection. With recent, high-quality hardshell case. SOLD!
