"69 hundred for a '69," this clean and original Brazilian rosewood D-28S is essentially a one-owner guitar that . Except for the original black acetate pickguard, which was replaced here at Gryphon as it had come loose and curled dramatically, all the parts and finish are as it left the factory in Nazareth 49 years ago. The interior bracing and bridgeplate are also original with no sign of repairs. You can see some pickwear to the top just beyond the outer edge of the pickguard, and there are a few small nicks and dings, but there are no cracks anywhere. There is some fine-pattern lacquer crazing to the top, not much sign of it anywhere else. This guitar has seen very little use in recent years. The case shown is the original, and while it's sturdy two of the latches aren't functional. Since these non-latching latches are not adjacent the case lid closes firmly. If the buyer would prefer a new case Gryphon will provide one at a discount.
