1937 Martin 000-28 Shade Top


(Sold). 1937 Martin 000-28 shade top. This guitar is extraordinarily special. A shade top 000-28 from the thirties is nearly unheard of but finding one in this condition with absolutely no cracks is like finding a needle in ten acres of hay. The finish is 100 percent original and untouched, free of overspray and touch up. This guitar conforms to the specifications of the era including forward shifted scalloped bracing, herringbone trim, 1 3/4 nut width, Adirondack top, snowflake inlays, and Brazilian rosewood back and sides. The condition is almost unbelievable as it retains even the original nut, frets, and fully functional tuners. This is a once in a lifetime dream instrument that would be the crown jewel of any collection. It also sounds absolutely incredible- note separation, articulation, and sustain much like a piano. Uncirculated. At Dying Breed Music- Only The Best Will Do.
