This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-12-01)
Price : US $1,889.
Made in 2000, you are bidding on a 12 fret, slot-head Martin HD-28VS. This guitar is very loud. It has even tone up the neck and has been set-up 3/32' at 12th fret/6th string and 2/32' at 12 fret/1st string with light gauge strings. The nut has been replaced with bone and the saddle has been replaced with bone and is compensated. The previous owner liked strumming where the neck meets the body, as a result there are pick scratches and pick dents in this area but can only be seen when turned at the correct angle, but are there. There also is a slight blemish to the finish on the back of the neck but cannot be felt. A great fingerpicking guitar, it plays well with a pick also. I've own this guitar for 2 years and has done me very well. Comes with OHSC with one latch missing. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Shipping includes insurance. Please go to the C.F. Martin web-site for more details on this guitar.On Nov-26-07 at 09:57:43 PST, seller added the following information:Contrary to 'ALL SALES FINAL' a 24 hr. return will be acceptible.

I have a Martin Custom HD-28S (Oct. 1995), the model before Martin issued this guitar as part of their Vintage Series and basically the same guitar, minus the Geib Case (mine has the 600 Series molded hardshell case). It is one of the best sounding guitars I have ever heard or played. Not too boomy in the base and great in the mid-range with lots of overtones and sustain. The longer body length, by 1", makes this a loud guitar when strummed, if you wish, or a great fingerpicking instrument if played that way. This is the original 1931 Martin Dreadnought shape with 12 frets to the body and slotted headstock. In the last 10 years or so many of the premier guitar makers are issuing 12 frets to the body dreadnoughts, realizing the great sound on these guitars. I bought my guitar used (2nd owner)in 1997 and will pass it on to my son, so it's not for sale. I once put classical strings on it and in essence had an oversized classical guitar. It was quite loud and had a wonderful sound, but I regularly use light guage phosphor bronze strings. My advise if one of these comes up for sale grab it. It's a sure winner and a lifetime instrument
