The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Martin CS 00028 Adirondack and Cocobolo, 2017


Instrument Categories: , ,

From the Custom Shop, here’s a very nice Martin CS 00028 featuring an Adirondack Spruce top paired with Cocobolo for the sides, back and head plate.

Martin’s Style 28 was introduced in 1870 and the 000 body size appeared in 1902, with one 000-28 built that year. These had 12-fret necks until 1933, with the change to 14-fret necks spurred by the great banjoist migration that began in the closing years of the 1920s.

This Martin CS 00028 dates to October of 2017 and is in very good condition with no appreciable wear and no damage of any kind. The 000 body size is compact (especially compared to the Dreadnought or Jumbo bodies) and comfortable. It delivers a well balanced representation throughout the frequency range with plenty of volume. These models are ideal for fingerstyle playing but work well with flat-picks too.

The 000-28 is also available in an Eric Clapton version, the 000-28EC, which we have in stock.

This Martin CS 00028 is sold with its original Martin hard shell Geib style case.
