Since introduced in 1970, the D12-28 has been Martin's most popular 12-string, and for good reason as it delivers that classic D-28 tone with plenty of bass to balance all those additional treble strings (the model has been in continuous production for 47 years, probably a record for any 12-string model). This one has had a neck reset, so string action is low with a full-height bridge and plenty of saddle above it. These photos show the nicks and dings to the finish but there are no cracks to the body. If you look closely at the back of the headstock, just below the tuners, you'll see signs of a well-repaired crack from long ago. Thanks to the carved dart or diamond at the base of the headstock there was lots of gluing surface so the repair has held up well and will continue to be solid. Original tuners and case.
