Martin HD-28vs (SOLD)

What a beauty! Classic looks and vintage tone. Styled like the HD-28V, but with 12 frets to body, a slotted headstock, wider V neck (1-3/4" at nut) and nickel Waverly gears. Features East Indian Rosewood back and sides and very nice evenly grained Sitka Spruce top, scalloped bracing, diamond & square fretboard inlays, ebony bridge with long saddle, maple bridge plate. Gloss finish, aging toner on top. Case is "Geib" style deluxe wooden case with maroon interior. The sound though is incomparable to the HD-28v though. In general, what you get with the 12 fret is a big, wide, sonic stage that is great for solo or small groups where you want a guitar to fill in the gaps. When the sole difference is 12 vs 14 frets, the biggest change is more bass on the 12 fretter. Someone described the difference like this: the 28v is the rifle, the 28VS is the shotgun. So now the questions remains: what is your 'weapon' of choice?

This guitar is in mint condition. Current retail price is € 4.499,-
