1978 Henderson 000-28, Indian Rosewood/Spruce
SOLDAdd to Compare
What could be finer than quality time with a Wayne Henderson guitar? Answer: quality time with 000-28 #51, the guitar Wayne built before his personal guitar, D-18 #52. Indian Rosewood and Spruce, Wayne’s name emblazoned across the thistle headstock inlay, and his curving bridge pin layout, match up smooth as you please with the traditional Martin-style herringbone appointments, Grained Ivoroid binding, and MOP diamonds across the fingerboard.
Around the block a time or two, this Hendo beau from 1978 is in excellent shape—all that time has not been wasted, either. The kind of quick response you’d expect from vintage, played-in guitars? We’re happy to say that yes, this 000 has more than opened up, and the 25.4” scale and soft-V neck is a delight for picks or fingertips.
We all love a good Henderson Dreadnought for volume and projection, but this lil 000-28 has a bit of the “little dog, big bark” complex, which is to say it’s as comfy as a lapdog but prone to frequent bouts of rather loud howling when you dig in for a bluesy solo.
We’d love to keep this beauty for ourselves, but that would hardly be fair to all you loyal Henderson lovers! Give us a ring for an in-hand description of the 000 Wayne built just before his personal D-18!
