Martin D-28 Authentic AGED 1937 (2018)

Sale Pending

Description

Here's our first pre-owned "Aged" Martin D-28 Authentic -- and if we're being honest, we'd never be able to tell this one apart from a new one, given the distressed finish. We sold this particular guitar when it was new, and it's been perfectly maintained (truly, this is an excellent chance for anyone interested in an Aged D-28 Authentic to grab a like-new guitar at a pre-owned price). Big, throaty sound, with great boom for bluegrass rhythm playing and a wide open, singing treble register. Priced with its original hard case! Please call us if you'd like an in0hand description--we don't expect this one to last too long!

On consignment. Please note: video sample shows a previously sold example of this model.
