In the 1930s Martin created the instruments that are now the models for superb tone and the 'American' guitar sound. We are simply thrilled to offer this 00-28 recently inspected & fined tuned by luthier Bill Tippin. This little beauty features tight grained Brazilian Rosewood and a silky Spruce top that puts out a very full and strong tone. The neck was recently set and done perfectly with new bar frets and great playability. There's nothing you need to do but play this wonderful vintage Martin guitar. This one is solid and clean, this is most certainly a Dream Guitar...

1931 Martin 00-28 - 00 Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"We feel so fortunate to find these rare vintage Martin Guitars. Here we have an amazing 00-28 from 1931. The tone is killer, big and open with small body character and power beyond it's proportions. It's loud and strong with that mature prewar bass and rich trebles. The Brazilian is textbook perfect, as is the Adirondack top. This is one of those dreamy prewar guitars that has been maintained so it's ready to just play. The neck set is perfect as are the new bar frets and we had it setup and tweaked by master luthier Bill Tippin. This is another one that's very hard to sell... Torture really..." - Paul Heumiller
