Description

This pre-VTS Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 model is in great shape, and waiting for an eager bluegrasser to take it home. It's in great shape, minus one noticeable ding on the top (bass side, near the butt of the guitar). Full-feeling, period correct neck profile, with a perfect 3/32" setup wearing medium gauge strings (adequate saddle height, should the next owner want lower action). With its original hard case. On consignment -- no trades, please.
