2012 Martin D-28 (consignment) SOLD

The Martin Dreadnought has been in regular production since its re-introduction in 1931, as a revival of the pre-1920 Ditson models. First listed as the D-1 and D-2, these models had 12-fret necks like the Ditsons. The D-1 combined a spruce top with mahogany for the back and sides, and the D-2 spruce and rosewood. In 1934, these models were rebuilt with 14-fret necks and became the Martin D-18 and Martin D-28.
