C. F. Martin D-28 Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (1974)

C. F. Martin  D-28 Flat Top Acoustic Guitar  (1974)

C. F. Martin D-28 Model Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (1974), made in Nazareth, PA, natural finish, rosewood back and sides, spruce top,mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, molded black plastic hard shell case.
Overall length is 41 in. (104.1 cm.), 15 3/4 in. (40 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 4 15/16 in. (12.5 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 25 1/2 in. (648 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.). Pretty clean overall except for one large (probably case-lid inflicted) scrape in the top above the bridge and some fairly typical pickwear above the soundhole. Appears all original except for a replacement tortoise-plastic pickguard (the original black acetate 'guards from this era tend to shrivel up like big potato chip) and a newer nut. Some finish touch up on the back of the neck behind the first fret but no cracks-looks like a scratch or capo mark was retouched. A very good player, nice big sound more open than many of these mid-70's Martins. Overall Excellent Condition.
