Description

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 pre-war 1934 000-28H masterfully converted by famed luthier T.J. Thompson and recently inspected & fined tuned by luthier Bill Tippin. A voice this complete and fulfilling can be attributed not only to father time but to the superb tight grained Brazilian Rosewood and silky Spruce top. The condition is wonderful and playability is absolutely perfect. This is certainly a Dream Guitar...

"This one is really hard to sell. I could easily have this one for my own. As Al says this is simply one of the best sounding instruments to ever come through our doors. The condition is superb for it's age and any work done has been by two of the most respected luthiers on the planet. To say this is special is a vast understatement. This is a guitar for all time..." - Paul Heumiller
 
"This is the holy grail of fingerpicking guitars. It's balanced and clear as a bell, perfect for recording and very comfortable to play. It's been fully converted from a Hawaiian model to a standard model and has standard frets and a radiused fingerboard. This is possibly the best guitar I've played at the shop." - Al Petteway
