Watchtower Guitars is excited to offer our clients a special collection of vintage and premier acoustic guitar builders, mandolins, banjos and other fine instruments. This collection was put together over the last fifty years and has some standout pieces that just don't come up for sale often. We've had this collection vetted by an expert in the vintage acoustic world. Please contact the shop directly by phone for any in hand descriptions.
Here we have very fine sounding classic herringbone D-28. This guitar has had a pro neck set and refret at Brothers guitar repair, as well as a replaced pickguard and bridge plate. The whole guitar shows overspray and some touch up to cover a removed larger pickguard - performed at the Martin factory in 1957. See scan of that original work order, which is so cool to have!
The case is non-original, but a standard Martin case in excellent condition.
It sounds and plays great, and to be honest, i'm really on the fence about selling this one. Tonally, every bit as good as the guitars we've had and sold for so much more. Where else can I get into a bona fide pre-war Martin flagship model with true old growth and Brazilian rosewood at this price point ?
