Demo of 1955 CF Martin D-28, Brazilian and Clean! – YouTube

PRICE$18,000.00FOURTH OF JULY SALE! $16,000.00

Adirondack Spruce top.  It certainly looks like the Vermont Spruce that Martin was ordering from the Eaton Lumber Company through out the 50s.  This one was a case queen for much of its life keeping the original finish very clean.  It is completely crack free but did have a center seam separation that was professionally reglued.  The guitar had the tuners replaced for Waverly Nickel tuners and it had a neck set done with a new bone saddle put in.  The guitar shows some wear and it comes in what appears to be the original case from what I can tell.  This one spent most of its life in Ft Worth TX.  The setup is nice and it currently is strung up with mediums and plays great.  It doesn’t need anything and is ready to go with great playability and intonation. This one has a super powerful warm woody sound! Really a special 1950s Martin.
