early 1977 Martin D-28 with original hard case

Welcome. Here, from way back in early 1977, comes a clean, one-owner D-28 that is a very easy playing and great sounding 37 year old. This is one of the early production models with Grover tuners and it has aged gracefully having been maintained meticulously by the original owner. This is a stunning and incredible sounding Dreadnought with original blue hard case. Has beautiful dark rosewood back and sides and neat aged spruce top. No long stories here...just a very cool old Martin D-28 looking for a loving new home.

Since its introduction in 1931, the Martin D-28 has remained the standard by which all large-bodied, steel stringed acoustic guitars are measured. The large "Dreadnought" sized body, originated by Frank H. Martin and Oliver Hunt in 1916, is named for a class of large British battleship and was considered a radical departure from small parlor-sized guitars of the period. Today, it is the most widely imitated guitar model in the world. The body of the D-28, built extra wide and deep, utilizes select East Indian rosewood for back and sides, and straight-grained Sitka spruce for the top. The neck is hand-carved from genuine mahogany; the fingerboard and bridge are genuine ebony. It is this combination of materials and body dimensions, as well as the Martin originated X-brace system, that produces the renowned "D-28 sound" - warm, deep bass response coupled with a strong, clear-as-a-bell treble.

List price for a new one is $3499. This nicely aged 40-year old is available at ...$2500.00
