While you can't know everything without it in hand, some photos would help. That said, the neck is worth more than $50 to a repairman, so you certainly did OK on the price.

I think you have the right idea to undertake the required structural repairs without worrying too much about cosmetics. For possibly a few hundred dollars you have a D-28 as a utility instrument. Hard to argue with that.

This might be a bigger project than he would want to undertake, but I'd consider Bryan Kimsey in New Mexico. Brothers Music in Pennsylvania could do whatever needs doing. Dave and Rich are both former Martin employees and excellent repairmen and builders.
