Description
Superb Martin 00-28VS from 2015 in stunning condition throughout. Part of the now discontinued Vintage series that ran from 2009-2018 the 00-28VS takes its cues from the legendary 12 -fret Martin Parlour Guitars from the 20’s and earlier. With a few modern refinements the 00-28VS is an excellent choice for a player whether looking for a fingerpicking parlour or a couch-side songwriter.

Featuring a 14 inch wide body with a tight grained, book matched Sitka Spruce top with premium Indian Rosewood back and sides. The tropical Mahogany neck joins the body at the 12th fret with a traditional with dovetail neck-to-body joint. The slot-head neck has a soft-V profile and an Ebony fingerboard to match the Ebony pyramid bridge with slot-thru saddle. Appointments include the 28 Series style diamond neck volute, vintage Abalone Diamond and square fingerboard inlays, grained Ivoroid body binding and Herringbone marquetry to the body front and zipper marquetry strip to the rear. Tuners are made by Waverly with brass spiders and nickel-plated shafts and butterbean button

A guitar of contrasts it is incredibly subtle and balanced tonally with even string-to-string response and the sweetness and warmth expected from a rosewood instrument whilst possessing an astonishing level of projection and volume. The guitar plays well with a wide 1 7/8” wide bone nut and a roomy 2 5/16″ string spacing at the bridge make for a very able fingerpicking guitar.

The guitar is in fantastic overall condition, there is a small amount of binding drift to the front waist of the guitar, a easy repair but worth noting. The guitar ships in its original Geib style Martin hardshell case.
