Martin D 28 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 2012

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.

Martin D35 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 2002

Martin D35 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 2002

The Martin D35 appeared in 1965 as builders adapted to changing Brazilian Rosewood supplies; the D35’s three piece back used panels too small for a two-piece back. By 1969, Martin had officially stopped use of Brazilian, though some occasionally appeared on D35’s as late as 1973, in favour of Indian Rosewood. Despite a false start – the earliest models had overly-braced backs that reduced volume – the Martin D35’s warm yet crisp tone rapidly gained popularity with bluegrass, country and folk guitarists, and singer-songwriters.
