TME is excited to host this Martin D-28 Authentic -- number 1 of 50 from the first production run of this model! As many Martin aficionados likely know, the first 50 D-18 Authentics are arguably the kings of that hill: they're the only ones that feature Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. This guitar comes to us from a good client and remains in excellent condition -- it presents very cleanly and resides in its original hard case. The setup and neck angle are excellent, with perfect 3/32" action under tension of medium gauge strings (and enough saddle showing to go lower if desired). The sound is fantastic, with the booming low end and woody, thick trebles anyone looking for a grail-level D-28 would expect. Give us a call for an in-hand description.
