Martin Hd 28 1978 (05/11)

$ 2922.21

Boundy-sounding HD-28 earliest model This is the earliest model of the HD-28 made in 1978, which began production as a prewar spec version of the D-28 in 1976.

Spruce TOP, Rosewood SIDE & BACK, Mahogany NECK, finger plate and bridge are ebony specifications. The non-forward shift scallop bracing and the bouncy and powerful sound peculiar to square tube rods are very popular. Coupled with the vintage-like look of herringbone trim, this is one that you will want to play forever. The original Mikaruta nut and bridge saddle remain, and the pegs will be the original USA Grover.

There is a feeling of use suitable for the age, the saddle is also quite low, and it seems that it is refreted a little. There are some string marks on the frets, but the current string height is 2.5mm on the 6th string side and 2.1mm on the 1st string side, which is a good play condition.
As a vintage that you can pick up, you can enjoy the sound.
