We present an original 1969 C.F. Martin D-28 in absolutely STUNNING condition. Made in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
This 1969 C.F. Martin D-28 is about as nice as you can find. A piece like this is near impossible to find in that condition. So much powerful sound and sustain in this beautiful dreadnought. The mahogany neck is in fantastic shape with no dings on back or missing lacquer. The veneer rosewood peghead with its CF Martin Logo decal is in great shape without any fading. The premium wide-grain spruce top is so fantastic. Overall this guitar only have extremely few nicks, dings, finish checking and other cosmetic play-wear. This model has a beautiful straight-grained rosewood back and sides. Martin considered straight-grained rosewood to be the most premium wood in that periode.

Antiqued white heelcap and endwedge. Original “red eye” bridge pins and Grower tuners. Newer frets shows very little play spots and the original Ivory nut is in perfect shape with a lot of life left.
