C. F. Martin 000-28 Steel String Guitar, 2006

C. F. Martin 000-28 Steel String Guitar, 2006

Overall, this C.F. Martin 000-28 Steel String guitar is in very nice condition, with minor wear. The finish doesn’t have any significant scratches, just very light scuffing that would polish well. Fret wear is light to moderate, and there’s plenty of material for a light fret dress to make them look new. The guitar has been played, but well cared for. This body style is tonally much more even than the big D body Dreadnoughts, which tend to be weighted towards bass.

Here’s a historical piece – a Larrivee classical guitar, built during 1969 in Toronto when John Larrivee was studying with Edgar Monch. This is one of Larrivee’s very first guitars, as evidenced by the label. The very first labels were hand typeset, and had two spelling errors, in the first and last names!

❌ SOLD ❌ Bourgeois Slope D Adirondack Sunburst 2009

❌ SOLD ❌  Bourgeois Slope D Adirondack Sunburst 2009

The Bourgeois Slope D is based on the large dreadnought body size, but with rounded or ‘Sloped’ upper bouts. The shape is similar to the original “Extra Large” dreadnought guitars made by C F Martin for the Ditson company from 1916 to 1930. Gibson also used the slope-shoulder form on many of their instruments, including the iconic J-45. However, during the 1960’s many of those models shifted to square shoulders to reflect market demand.
