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.

Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Translucent Gold, 2011

Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Translucent Gold, 2011

The Ernie Ball Music Man Axis is a straight ahead model, built to reliably deliver rock performance – a Basswood body with Maple cap, bolt on Maple neck, a pair of humbuckers, and a Floyd Rose double locking system are the core components. Introduced in 1996, the Ernie Ball Music Man Axis has been a popular design. It does exactly what it’s designed to do, and very well. The combination of a Maple capped Basswood body and Maple bolt on neck provide excellent tone, with lots of warmth but also clarity and separation.

Martin D18 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 1956

Martin D18 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 1956

The Martin D18 Dreadnought appeared in 1931 as banjo players increasingly converted to guitar, and required ever increasing volume levels. For the first three years, the D-18 was built with a 12-fret neck, but the banjo influence quickly added two more frets clear of the body. As a 14-fret dreadnought, the D18 and its sibling the D-28 rapidly became the guitar of choice for country, bluegrass and folk players.
