Once in a great while you come across an amazing guitar that is not only very rare and from Martins Golden Era but in pristine condition and Crack Free!
The top of the guitar was over sprayed as was the back of the neck. The sides, back, and head stock are original and very clean. The face of the headstock has its original gold logo without the black border. The guitar has its original nut, pickguard, bar stock frets, bridge pins and end pin. (the end pin is included in the case.) The bridge was professionally replaced but retains it’s original and clean bridge plate.
The action is low with plenty of saddle due to a pro neck reset. The Waverly “Relic” tuners, mounting holes in the tuner plates are slotted so all of the screw holes in the back of the headstock are original. (see pictures)
This OM-28 doesn’t have any cracks along the edges of the fretboard at the soundboard. The pickguard is clean and hasn’t had any shrinkage. Even the original case is in great shape for it’s age.
Sound wise: To many enthusiasts, including myself, these were the best sounding Martins ever produced and in extremely low numbers. I think they produced less than 50 this year. The choice of the greatest guitarists in the world, you are lucky to find one, especially in this condition. Priced for fast sale…
