Back & Sides:
Pre-owned 1968 model. Excellent shape. All original except for an understated tortoise replacement pickguard amazingly. No cracks or visible repairs. The Brazilian rosewood is attractive, and the guitar has a classic 60’s loud wonderful Martin D-28 sound. The neck was professionally reset with new frets, great neck angle/bridge height and the action is extremely comfortable. The sound is a classic 60’s D-28 Martin. It has The Sound. Original owner placed two opposite bird decals on each side of the upper bout. You can see very faint ghost images of these, but they truly are not very noticeable. Appears someone touched up a finish chip on the back of the instrument. 1968 was a year of transition as far a bridgeplates go, and this instrument has a small Brazilian bridgeplate, which probably is one reason for its outstanding tone. It comes with a recent hardshell high quality case.
