1998 Martin D-28 Dreadnought (consignment)  SOLD

This is a very clean 1998 Martin D-28 Dreadnought guitar. Martin introduced the Dreadnought body shape in 1916, building the first ones for the Oliver Ditson company – these did not carry the Martin brand name. These instruments had mahogany backs and sides, and the necks joined the body at the twelfth fret. The Ditson company disappeared in 1920, and the Dreadnought guitar went with it.
