A Martin guitar has been on my bucket list every since a friend of mine let me play his about twenty years ago. He worked at a funeral home there and played it at church. I looked up the serial number and it was made between 2005 and 2006. The action is low and it plays beautifully. Even a novice like me can accent the bass, midrange or treble while softly strumming the strings.
You can make it thunder and roar or whisper and sing. If this guitar was a Scotch, it would be a 25 year old bottle and that's the way I have treated it.
This is the guitar I play when I want to feel the music. The guitar is in very good condition.There are some light surface scratches, but no major dings or dents. I didn't notice it until I started taking pictures but there are a couple of places on the head where the capo must have been left on by the previous owner. I have always stored the guitar in its original hard shell case and have never used a pick to play it. The case has a few scuffs from when I took it on vacation, but is tight and solid. Father Time has caught up with me and my fingers are beginning to gnarl and stiffen so I have decided to let it go. I'm listing it for well under what I paid for it with the hopes of breaking even, but even if I don't, the enjoyment I've gotten from it is well worth any monitory. Look closely at the pictures and feel free to ask any questions. If it is more, then it's my loss. I'll enclose a link to the Martin Guitar website for more details on the HD-28. Just a note to let you know that those are not scratches on the body of the guitar in picture 7. They are reflections from the case. Also, the quarter rests on frets 11 and 12.
