Description

eBay item number:

Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
Seller Notes: Top finish has some minor crazing, finish overall has minor wear and minor scratches both considered normal in an instrument of this vintage.

1939 Martin D-28 with herringbone trim, serial number 72834. Beautiful/original Brazilian Rosewood finish on back and sides - worth the price of admission alone. Sweet sounding guitar when I purchased it 39 years ago - much improved now. Pre-war Martin instruments are sought after by professional musicians for their deeper, richer harmonics and higher volume capability than most newer instruments. This one has original tuning machines. Top finish has some crazing - does not affect the sound. Action is fully adjustable to buyer preferences by any authorized Martin service shop. Per a nearby Martin service shop, the bridge saddle is leaning toward the rosette and can be easily adjusted. Top was replaced early 1970's by authorized Martin service shop for former owner prior to my purchase.  Lifton hardshell case included. Buyer pays shipping. *** Due to rarity and value of instrument, please contact seller prior to shipping to verify shipping method (ground, 3 day, etc.) / cost and allow 7 days before it's shipped as a wood case will be constructed by UPS to assure shipping safety for both guitar and guitar case.

PLEASE IGNORE SHIPPING CALCULATOR AS THIS GUITAR WILL HAVE TO BE CUSTOM CRATED BY UPS AND INSURED ABOVE UPS DEFAULT AMOUNTS. IF YOU WIN THE BID I CAN PROVIDE AN EXACT SHIPPING/INSURANCE QUOTE DEPENDING ON YOUR ZIP/SHIPPING TYPE (GROUND, ETC.).
