2014 Martin D28 1935 Sunburst – £2499
NEW ARRIVAL A lot of people consider the Martin D28 to be the benchmark Spruce / Rosewood dreadnought. Tonally it has a very complex sound, great depth and resonance, plenty of punch and attack, and well balanced with superbly articulated clarity. Dreadnoughts are thought to be the most versatile acoustic guitars, and this example sounds great strummed or fingerpicked, with great definition and sustain when soloing. Quite simply it’s a classic, and at 9 years old it’s starting to mature really well. The guitar features a Spruce top finished in a limited run 1935 sunburst which is really eye catching, and an Indian Rosewood back and sides which are dark and beautifully grained. From a playability point of view, this guitar is a treat, the neck has a great feel to it, and the action is very comfortable. The guitar is in good condition with quite a lot of light strum wear around the pickguard. It has an under saddle pickup fitted, and comes in a non original hard case.
