Martin D-28 John Lennon 75th Anniversary

John Lennon acquired his first Martin D-28 acoustic guitar in 1967 around the time that the video for The Beatles’ new song “Hello Goodbye” was filmed. From that point on, the D-28 (he owned several over the ensuing years) played an integral role in Lennon’s songwriting and performances. Commemorating John Lennon’s incredible legacy and lasting contribution to music, and celebrating the 75th anniversary of his birthday (he would have turned 75 on Friday, October 9th, 2015), Martin Guitar is honored to introduce the D-28 John Lennon 75th Anniversary edition. Limited to no more than 75 instruments, this special guitar is a 14-fret Dreadnought crafted with a Vintage Tone System (VTS) Adirondack spruce top. The sides and back are bookmatched from solid Madagascar rosewood for a strong and powerful bass resonance – the back being inlaid with HD-28 style “zig-zag” peace sign marquetry. Genuine black ebony is selected for the fingerboard and belly bridge. The Madagascar rosewood headplate is adorned with John Lennon’s famous self-portrait illustration that rests beneath the Martin script logo, both inlaid in colorful shell. The guitar’s remaining inlay theme is inspired by several of Lennon’s song lyrics: “the moon, the stars and the sun” (from Instant Karma), the number “9” (Revolution #9, #9 Dream, etc.), Lennon’s round eyeglasses, and his signature, inlaid in mother of pearl between the 19th and 20th frets. The pickguard bears a large sun inlay (“Sun King,” “Here Comes the Sun,” etc.) in mother of pearl with rays that emanate toward the rosette that is circumscribed with nearly two dozen mother of pearl peace signs against a black background. This guitar is number 14 of only 75 made and is in mint, collectors condition. Includes original Martin hardshell case. Consignment sale.
