This is a very clean 1998 Martin D-28 Dreadnought guitar. Martin introduced the Dreadnought body shape in 1916, building the first ones for the Oliver Ditson company – these did not carry the Martin brand name. These instruments had mahogany backs and sides, and the necks joined the body at the twelfth fret. The Ditson company disappeared in 1920, and the Dreadnought guitar went with it.
The Twelfth Fret will be CLOSED on Friday, April 18 2014 for the Good Friday statutory holiday. We will reopen as usual on Saturday, April 19 and on Monday, April 20. We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday.
This 1982 Steinberger L2 Fretless Bass, number 466, is in great condition, with all the parts. As a fretless, it is not a conversion, but a factory fretless model. It has two EMG active pickups and four controls. It uses double ball end strings, and features the breakthrough bridge and tuner tailpiece.
The Gibson SJ 200 is one of the iconic steel string flat top guitars. Introduced in 1937, it was an immediate hit. While it’s a fairly large guitar – according to the 1938 Gibson catalog, the SJ stands for Super Jumbo, after all – it’s actually quite comfortable to play. Tonally, it’s very even, and can be rather loud with great projection.
