Default FS: REDUCED $ Custom Martin D28 (Alpine/Madi)

4/19: additional views of Madagascar rosewood back added at the end of the thread

OPEN TO TRADES--especially short scales

***price drop to $3200 or best reasonable offer***

***please notice edit below re: neck profile: it's a low profile, not PA***

For sale is my Custom Shop Martin D-28 guitar with a gorgeous Italian Alpine top and Madagascar rosewood back and sides. Look at the tight grain on the Italian Alpine spruce and the figuring on the Madagascar rosewood back and sides--this is the real stuff!

It has been played for barely a couple of hours, as you can see from its pristine condition. The only mark to speak of is in the grain -- see photo with my thumb in it for relative scale. It's not a ding and you can't feel it at all--it was there when I bought it. Here are the specs:

Solid Italian Alpine spruce top
Solid Madagascar rosewood back and sides
Herringbone trim
Ivoroid binding
Bone nut and saddle
Mahogany neck
Ebony bridge
Ebony fingerboard
Dovetail neck joint
1 11/16" nut width
25.5" scale
***low profile neck***
Silver vintage tuning machines
Note: I upgraded the bridge pins, but I have the originals and will include both sets for you

Financial circumstances are forcing me to sell, otherwise I would never consider selling this one.

Priced at $3500 plus actual shipping costs of your choice; payment by cashier's check or PayPal gift please. If you prefer to use PayPal purchase, please add the 3% for fees...

I had one of these for a short time but sold it to score a Vintage Martin I couldn't pass up. It was a fabulous sounding, looking, and playing guitar with a really nice punchy midrange, crisp highs, and a nice low end that was not quite as thumpy as Vintage D-28 I have now. All and all, this is a great guitar and I think GC only made 100 of them.

Good luck

No relation to the seller.

Thanks, Alan!

It's a 2011 build.

I'll get a photo of the Madi back up by this evening.
