The steel string braced 00-28 first started to appear in the Martin line up in the mid 1920's, after years of variations of the Style 28 model from the later 19th century onwards. The classic Spruce top, mid size 00 body shape design is one of the most played small body acoustics of the 20th century, with a beautifully resonant, balanced tone that often belies their smaller size. This 2016 Martin 00-28 Standard is a great example of the fine instruments being produced by Martin to this day. Constructed from a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, this guitar has a lightweight build that makes it very punchy and dynamic, responding very well to both finger style playing and flat picking. This model also features the black pick guard and binding, as well as an X pattern bracing to ensure optimal resonance and tone.
This guitar is in excellent condition, with only the most minor signs of play wear visible on the finish. The guitar is in all original condition, and retains its original case.
As with all our vintage instruments, this 2016 00-28 has been given a full service and appraisal by the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
