1968 C.F. Martin D28S
CITES A10 cert. #552861/01
Such magnificent and rare guitars.......this slope shouldered 12 fret Martin with Brazilian rosewood rims and back and a Sitka Spruce top. Forward shifted bracing and in absolutely immaculate condition. Owned this back in 2017 and it now comes home again. That was when we could get CITES A10 certificates and this one retains the one I got for it back then. Beautiful clear and clean finish with lots of color and basically no playwear. If you have never played one of these behemoths, it's required reading. They are the pinacle of wood combinations, desirable bracing and the feel of a short scale while the soundhole sits in the sweetspot where it originally was with the first Ditson models, the dinosaurs of the dreadnought guitar. Magnificence in music !!!
