This 1928 CF Martin 00-28 has survived in lovely original condition and is ready for the stage, studio, or collection. It’s in perfect playing condition and has all the grand piano tone these guitars are known for. The original steel string bracing and light construction have stood the test of time wonderfully. Repairs include a neck reset with bone saddle, TJ Thompson ebony pyramid bridge, original bar frets shimmed and dressed, 3 short back cracks repaired, original nut filled and recut, replacement set of aged Waverly oak leaf tuners. There was a short area of purfling on the back near the treble bottom edge missing and replaced. There are some light scratches on the top as well as a scratched in “to:” and “from:” on the bass side upper bout. The original ivory bridge pins, ivory nut, one set of original Waverly tuners with one missing post, and hard shell case are included.
This 00-28 is the finest sounding acoustic guitar I can remember playing. The bar fret dressing performed by Jason Burns (Burnsrepair.com) was meticulous and resulted in a wonderful feeling fretboard that’s a joy to play. We’re confident that you’ll love the tone and playability as much as we do.
