Martin D28 Dan Tyminski Sold and Discontinued

Martin D28 Dan Tyminski Sold and Discontinued

Bluegrass composer, vocalist and instrumentalist Dan Tyminski is probably best known for his Grammy winning version of “Man of Constant Sorrow” from the movie “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”. He is also a member of the band Alison Krauss and Union Station and has won 10 Grammy awards for solo and collaborative projects. So what does a multiple Grammy award winning bluegrass player want from a guitar? How about a big loud dreadnought with tons of headroom and warm rich overtones. Sounds good to me!

Martin 00-18 1928 (Consignment) SOLD

This little mahogany 00 may have had a few trips around the block but it is in great overall shape for its age. The neck has been reset and the bridge replaced so the guitar plays very well and has a lot of saddle height to work with. The woody sounding bass and distinct midrange complement the softer rounded trebles for a lovely round tone. Very cool little guitar!!

Martin D-18 1952 SOLD

Here is a D-18 from the early 50’s that has seen some good hard playing time. There are a few repairs and lots of wear to the finish. The guitar is structurally sound but could use a neck reset to play well. The tone is full and warm with a nice balance through the bass, middle and treble frequencies.

Martin OM-18 1931 (Consignment) SOLD

The Martin Orchestra Model was original released in 1929 and was available until 1933 when it was changed to the shorter scale 000 model. This OM-18 features a long scale neck on a small body which makes a very responsive and playable guitar. One of the first truly modern flat top acoustic guitars it was also the first Martin to have a neck with 14 frets clear of the body. The comfortable V neck profile and 1 3/4″ nut width along with the smaller body instantly appealed to finger style players. Major factors contributing to the great sound of these guitars are the scalloped braces, small maple bridge plate which allow the top to move more freely and the long scale length. This longer scale length requires the strings to be at a higher tension when tuned to concert pitch. This extra tension drives the top more and provides more volume and tone. This example is in all original and excellent overall condition with purely cosmetic play wear!!
