Sold! Martin D 28 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 2012

Sold!  Martin D 28 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 2012

This particular Martin D 28 was built during 2012 as part of the Standard Series at the Martin plant in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. It is in overall good condition. It has been well cared for but has been used as intended, so there is honest play wear in the usual locations. In particular, there is some pick wear to the top finish on the treble side of the fingerboard tag.   There is also light to moderate fret wear in the lower positions.
