2014 Martin HD-28
This is a 2014 Martin HD-28. Serial number 1737256. It is an excellent guitar that plays very well. It runs for about $3,000 new and comes with a nice hard case.
It is in very good shape. There are some surface scratches on the upper left corner of the front (see the last picture for detail) and some on the back, but they are just in the finish and don't penetrate to the wood.
Drawing from one of the true classic models, the Martin HD-28 reflects decades of building experience and instrument evolution. The Martin ‘D’ or Dreadnought line has dominated the acoustic guitar world since the 1930’s and those based on the D-28 have topped the list.
The ‘H’ at the start of the HD28 model name indicates that it has Herringbone purfling. This is a visual reference to historic vintage instruments, built up to the end of WW2. This Martin HD28 was built during 2014 at the Martin factory in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. It has Sitka Spruce top and braces, Indian Rosewood for the back, sides, and head plate. Mahogany is used for the neck, body blocks, linings, and back braces. The fingerboard is Ebony, as is the bridge.
This is an excellent deal on a great, iconic guitar.
