Description

A piece of history which gave us goosebumps at first sight: Kevin Odegard’s 1969 Martin D-28, featured on Bob Dylan's Blood On The Tracks. This was also the last year for such beautiful Brazilian Rosewood to grace a standard D-28, and the decades of playing that Kevin has put it through since have given the Sitka top a well-loved and played-in appearance. We can only guess at how many hours of music this Martin has seen since 1969. The neck feels familiar and intimate with a few faint marks along the back, and the slim 1 11/16” nut makes for quick and easy left hand work. But what really makes us smile? This Martin is still ready for action. Kevin has installed a Fishman Ellipse Blend pickup + mic system, and the setup is dialed in just like a well-oiled tone machine should be. Not only is this D-28 a piece of American history, it’s also a guitar that's eager to keep singing its heart out. We're honored Kevin has entrusted a Martin with so much pedigree to our care, and we're honored to offer it now to you.
