Martin HD28 D-14 Fret Guitar, 2020

Martin HD28 D-14 Fret Guitar, 2020

Hopefully this is an indicator of better things – a brand new Martin HD28, delivered to us this week, one of the first shipments from the builder since the shutdown. The Martin HD28, using the 14 fret D body and pairing a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood sides and back, is one of the benchmark American guitars. As the D-28 it’s been in production since 1931, and the D28H indicates that it has Herringbone pattern purfling around the top.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Advanced Jumbo Historic Collection Vintage Burst, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Advanced Jumbo Historic Collection Vintage Burst, 2005

Here’s a lovely and unusual piece – a Gibson Advanced Jumbo Historic Collection model, patterned after the original 1936 round shouldered, Rosewood dreadnought. While this looks rather like other Gibson round shoulder models – particularly the venerable J-45 – the Advanced Jumbo has a longer scale length, the X brace is moved closer to the soundhole, and the sides and back are Rosewood instead of Mahogany. Gibson launched the Advanced Jumbo in 1936 but discontinued it in 1939. The original models used a mix of Brazilian and Indian Rosewood – both are documented.

❌SOLD❌ Guild X170 Archtop Electric Blonde, 1988

❌SOLD❌ Guild X170 Archtop Electric Blonde, 1988

The Guild X170, also called the ‘Mini Manhattan’ was built from 1985 until 2002 as a fully hollow electric archtop with laminated Maple body, Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard. Here we’re looking at a Guild X170 dating to late 1988 and built in Westerly, Rhode Island. It’s in very good clean condition with very little wear of any kind. The clear, natural finish is in great shape and nicely shows off the light figuring of the Maple top, back and sides. The neck uses a five-piece construction with three Maple sections separated by two thin Walnut layers.
