Martin HD-28 1978
Martin HD-28 1978. First of all, this must be one of the nicest looking solid Indian Rosewood backs on a Martin that we've seen, beautiful grain and pattern. It also has solid Indian Rosewood sides and a solid Sitka Spruce top, which are divided by a herringbone trim, and it has a Mahogany neck with Ebony fretboard that has been adorned with snowflake inlays. It is in original and excellent condition. Usually Martins from this era (1968 to 1987) have a Rosewood bridgeplate, This had a somewhat adverse effect on the sound for a lot of Martin models, and it is the end-point in collectibility for some people. The HD-35 is an exception, it had that beloved Maple bridgeplate, and this particular HD-28 still has its original Maple bridgeplate. It is completely original, including the finish, nicely matured and has a voice to fall in love with, beautiful round bass tones, lovely mids and clear highs which are wonderfully balanced.
As stated before, it is in excellent condition both structurally and cosmetically. It has a tiny crack just under the pickguard that has been repaired professionally, and it is perfectly stable, and there are some light strumming marks on the top and some very light angelhair wear on its back, but overall it is in remarkably good condition for its age.
