This is very cool, early vintage series D12-28. These were basically a cross between a D12-28 and the early version of the HD-28V which means it has herringbone purfling, Ivoroid binding, aging toner on the top and other features that defined the "Vintage Series" Martin models that came out a decade later. These were available as custom orders long before they showed up in the Martin catalog. This one is in good condition with typical playing wear to the finish and is crack-free and totally original. Recent neck reset and refret by Gryphon, so it plays like a new guitar. Original Martin-branded case included.
