1942 Martin 000-28 Guitar
(Serial Number 81128) Excellent plus condition wartime example of Martin's most popular small body flat-top guitar model. Straight grain Brazilian rosewood back and sides, Adirondack spruce top with scalloped braces, herringbone top trim, ebony fretboard with slotted diamond inlays and a bone 1 11/16 nut, and an ebony bridge with the long bone saddle. As built from Martin with an ebony reinforcement rod in the neck as steel was scarce during the war years, but the neck is straight and true. Great sounding guitar with a nice low action, as the neck was reset and the guitar was refretted by luthier Dan Blom in Tennesssee. Original finish and hardware, no cracks or major repairs. Shows some typical minor playing wear on the back of the neck and few nicks and dings, but nothing major. Completely solid and a great playing and sounding guitar. Comes with a newer hardshell case.
