1926 Martin 00-28

SOLD | What an a-ma-zing instrument! This is as close to MINT as we’ve seen a 85-years old guitar! 2 piece adirondak top, finest grade, straight grained, quartersawn, old growth brazilian rosewood back and sides, 12 frets to the body, mahogany neck with slotted headstock, ebony fingerboard and bridge, bar frets. As mentioned, there’s not much else to say about this guitar: it is in exceptionally fine condition and with no issues of sort. Plays very comfortably thanks to a recent neck reset and refret (performed by Gruhn Guitars of Nashville, TN). It sounds fabulous! I’ll repeat this: it really does sound fabulous. Pure, honest, clear and any other pretty much worthless adjective you can think of and associate with the best vintage tone you can imagine coming from a 12 fret, brazilian rosewood box. Doesn’t get much better than this for that late 20’s Martin sound. Really. Comes with 2 cases: the original one and a Calton. Appraised by George Gruhn on Oct 2007. The letter of appraisal is provided with the instrument.
