1968 Martin D-28 SN# 234261 This is a classic example of what is considered by many to be the last great year of vintage Martin guitars. The main reason being in 1969 Martin started using Indian Rosewood instead of Brazilian Rosewood. This is particularly good D-28 from the late 60's and in great condition. You can see from the pictures that the guitar looks almost like new. It has that classic D-28 big cutting, very balanced sound. Super Silky Midrange, Deep Bass, and clear as a bell treble tone. This is the true vintage Brazilian D-28 Cannon. The guitar also has a perfect set up and plays like a dream. The action is just right all the way up the neck and there is no buzzing that I can find anywhere. This Guitar has the most beautiful figuring in the Brazilian back and sides that I have seen and it is in extremely clean condition. The top is also in great shape with no major scars. There is some very light crazing in the lacquer on the top that is normal for these guitars. I would be concerned if it were not there. This Crazing shows that this guitar has never had the finish oversprayed, refinished or touched in any way. There are NO repaired or unrepaired cracks on this guitar and it is mostly all original. The nut has been replaced with a bone nut, there has been a strap button added as you can see in the pictures and there is a passive pickup installed that plugs in the end pin this work was done by Martin Guitar Co. These are the only changes that I am aware of. The bridge pins are original as it the bridge and everything else. This is truly one of the cleanest Vintage Brazilian Martins you will find and is
