1978 C. F. Martin HD-28 Acoustic Guitar w/Original Hardshell Case (USED)

Our Notes: This guitar is in very good shape. The action is 0.125 on the 6th string at the 12th fret. The bridge is lifting from the top ever so slightly. At one point in this guitar's life, it was sent to Martin to have the top replaced under warranty. Everything else about the guitar is in excellent condition. It includes the original Martin hardshell case.


The HD-28 is the "herringbone" version of the D-28 that has vintage features that include herringbone top trim, a traditional zig-zag backstrip, and Martin's famous scalloped X-bracing. The body, extra-wide and deep, producing a much stronger bass and clearer treble, is from the industry's finest selection of rosewood. The spruce used for the top is carefully chosen by our most experienced craftsmen. The bracing is all hand-shaped, as is the neck, which is carved from a solid piece of genuine mahogany and reinforced with a steel bar. The fingerboard and bridge are ebony, for beauty and dignity. The soundhole is trimmed with black and white purfling and the back is joined with fine marquetry. The fingerboard inlays are pearl; and friction-free, sealed and permanently lubricated tuning machines secure the strings. This beautiful and highly-sought guitar, edged in gleaming Herringbone binding, is polished to a high gloss. From the rosewood-faced Martin pegs heads to the inlay piece in the lower bout, this guitar is a work of experience and excellence.
