A remarkably clean and well-preserved 000-28. Pretty much original throughout, with original tuners, nut, pickguard, and a finish that's never seen any repairs or touchup. No cracks, except for a very slight shrinkage crack to the top at the inner edge of the pickguard under the high E string. Brian Michael here in our repair dept. just completed a neck reset and refret on this 000, and since the original bridge had been cut down to lower the string action years ago the bridge was replaced with an exact facsimile as well. Our favorite thing on this Martin, besides the great sound, is the way they positioned the book-matched back so the grain curves in at the waist, almost as if they bent the grain lines at the same time they bent the rosewood sides. Nice touch! Check the photos, they give a far better idea of the surface condition that a wordy description.
