1979 Martin HD28 – £1999

ON HOLD  Only introduced in 1976, finding a 70’s HD28 is quite a rarity. If you consider the Martin D28 to be the classic Spruce / Rosewood dreadnought, then the HD28 is a step above this – the Herringbone binding adding a very distinctive touch of class, and the scalopped bracing allowing the top to resonate more. So excellent clarity and definition, with greater attack and sustain. The guitar works well for all styles, from heavy strumming to flatpicking and fingerstyle. At 41 years old, the tone has matured really well, and the guitar is in very good condition, quite faded, and has a very comfortable feeling neck. It has a Fishman Matrix pickup fitted, and comes in a non original hard case.
