1952 Martin 000-28
Sitka / Brazilian Rosewood

Model Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (1952), made in Nazareth, PA, natural lacquer finish, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, spruce top; mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, black hard shell case. Here is a real delight in an early 1950's Martin-an very well preserved 000-28 from 1952. Rosewood 000's from this period are surprisingly rare guitars. Only 120 were produced this year and a grand total of less than 900 examples produced in all of the 1950's, making the 000-28 very much a connoisseur's model even then. More than 900 D-28's shipped out in 1957 alone! At $175 new this was a fairly expensive guitar, and fell 'between the cracks" a bit between the inexpensive student Martins and the top-end Dreadnoughts.This 000 has the classic early-1950's appointments; multi-layer celluloid binding back and top, long-saddle bridge, dot-inlaid ebony fingerboard and Kluson Deluxe tuners. Beautiful bookmatched Brazilian rosewood on the back and sides with some love figuring off the center seam and a very even-grained spruce top this is a fabulous guitar to look at; still, the real beauty comes in the playing. This guitar responds extremely well to both a light and heavier-handed strumming approach, and is extremely responsive. The 000-28 is one of our favorite Martin models, and this is one of the sweetest examples we have seen recently.Overall length is 39 3/4 in. (101 cm.), 15 1/8 in. (38.4 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 4 1/8 in. (10.5 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 24 3/4 in. (629 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.). A very fine example overall; there is some general wear but no major finish loss or repairs. The top center seam has been resealed behind the bridge, and there is some pickwear through the finish around the pickguard and soundhole edge, which is worn well into the wood on the treble side. The bridge and bridgeplate are original,
