C. F. Martin D28 Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought, 1969

C. F. Martin D28 Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought, 1969

This C.F. Martin D28 built during 1969 at the Martin facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. In keeping with the time it was built, the Rosewood used for the sides, back and head plate was sourced in Brazil. The top is Sitka Spruce, the neck and body blocks Mahogany, and the fingerboard and bridge are Ebony. Grover Roto-Matic tuners are installed and a new bone saddle and bridge pins have been added. The headstock is the late 1960’s rounded shape, with a relatively slim profile neck. It’s very comfortable to play.

Sold! C. F. Martin OM-35 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2006

Sold!  C. F. Martin OM-35 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2006

The C. F. Martin OM-35  was built between 2003 and 2007, drawing from the excellent tonal results of the OM design and adding ’35’ level features. While the OM-35 itself is discontinued, it is now available with a standard pickup as the OM-35E. The Martin OM is itself based on the OOO or ‘Triple O’ body design, but adds a longer scale length neck – 25.4 inches instead of the Triple O’s 24.9 inches. This increases the string tension, making the top work a bit harder to deliver a bit more volume and clarity.

This particular guitar was recently rebuilt by Barry, with work including a neck reset with fret dress and a neck-off refinish of the top that included a repair to a top crack.
