You always wanted a pre-war Martin D28 with Brazilian Rosewood, but you just didn't want to spend the $50,000 for the rare privilege...Happily, here is a Custom HD-28V--crafted in 1992, with that fabled, extinct Brazilian on its back and sides, with sound and power to match its pre-war "cousins!" One firm strum shows off its rich, throaty explosion of sound; and when you fingerpick, it responds with hearty gusto!
It has many of the features of those famous old Martin Herringbone D-28s, including a square headstock, ivoroid bindings, pre-war hand-scalloped X-brace pattern, a very playable 1 11/16" Modified V neck--this gives a sense of the old guitars, but lots more comfort, a tortoise-colored pick guard and the diamond and squares fingerboard inlay pattern. with matching inlays on the bridge. The original Martin hard shell case is very special too, using the "military-style" latches to safely secure the guitar! As "icing" on this delicious acoustic "cake", Chris Martin personally hand-signed a Custom Shop label placed inside this treasure!
This incredible instrument was briefly owned by one of our dear customers. He had it such a short time that the protective cover is still on the pick guard! It has been in Marty's loving care for all these years. It has not been played out, and she has always kept it in well-monitored humidity and temperature conditions. Now she hopes this wonderful guitar will find its "forever home!"
