1956 Martin D-28



This 1956 Martin D-28, sn 152622, was made with especially attractive woods. The Sitka spruce top displays an even grain spacing and nice cross-grain “silking” figure. The lovely Brazilian rosewood back and sides have a bright reddish-orange color with jet black lines. The Honduras mahogany neck was equipped with the ribbed back Kluson tuners, that remain with crisp and bright surfaces. The Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay has a quieter look in grain and color. The ebony fingerboard has the standard pearl dots inlay. The pickguard is clean and is completely attached. There is a glued center seam separation on the top between the bridge and tail. There is a glued B string area pickguard shrinkage crack. No other cracks appear on the guitar. The bridge pins are black dot replacements. The top was lightly oversprayed. The remainder of the guitar was given a light “cleanup” buffing. The voice is complex and even. A very nice versatile 1956 D-28. With contemporary hardshell case.
