Default 2021 Edmonds D-28 (SOLD)

Up for sale is a basically new (mint condition) D-28 built by Jimmy Edmonds. It was finished at the beginning of this year, and it features an Adirondack Spruce top with Honduran Rosewood back and sides.

Check out the video demo here:

https://youtu.be/_otgJTAVr14

Without a doubt, Jimmy is one of the top luthiers in the country building Martin-style guitars. He has been at it for a while, so it’s pretty amazing that his prices are still as low as they are. This guitar has a powerful, beautiful, crisp tone with perfect balance and excellent playability. It’s everything you want in a new D-28.

The only reason I’m selling it is because I’ve recently developed a preference for a narrower nut width and saddle spacing. This D-28 has specs that are likely to satisfy most potential buyers: 1 ¾” nut width, 2 ¼” spacing at the saddle. Very comfortable C-shaped mahogany neck, Waverly tuners, Diamonds & Squares fretboard inlay, and bridge pins with abalone dots.

Asking $SOLD + shipping. Not considering trades for this one.

Sweet! One of my favorite necks (Martin HD-28KM) has similar specs at 1 3/4 and 2 1/4. I bet this plays so easy.

cant believe this is still available? id be all over it if i weren’t working on another build with Mr. Edmonds, i cant stress enough, being fortunate enough to have so many beautiful guitars that Jimmys attention to detail and his voicing along with his willingness to make whatever you want to ensure that you get the guitar of your dreams is unparalleled, in my 45 plus years of experience hes a touch above! somebody buy this beautiful guitar!

Wonderful guitar (and playing), my friend. If I wasn’t already waiting for one from Jimmy (see sig) I’d be all over this. GLWTS!

If I could only own instruments my talent deserves I’d still be playing a kazoo.

Thanks for the comments everyone! Bumping it up again. If you are a fan of Hooper, Altman, Caleb Smith, etc. you may want to check this out -- and it's at a much friendlier price point!
