This Martin D-28 is in good condition. It has seen a lot of repairs and restoration, but is one of the best sounding late 40's D-28s we have seen. It has had numerous cracks on the body repaired, as well as a headstock crack repair. It is stable and plays well. It had a neck reset as well as a new nut, saddle, bridge, and bridge plate. The tuners were switched to Grover Rotomatics at one time, but now has Waverly High Ratio Aged Nickel Tuners that suit the guitar vey well. The guitar ws re-fretted with EVO fretwire that will last for many years to come. The guitar features its original case, but the handle has been replaced. This guitar is not pristine, but has been well loved and sounds incredible. Send us a message with any questions!
