Default NGD: Martin 000-28EC - drool time!

I've had the guitar now 3 weeks. It's my dream guitar. Plays and sounds as good as it looks.

Sorry it is a link to the photos but hopefully after seeing them you feel it was worth the click!

Great photos! Would love to have one of those. Ran across a spectacular sounding example at Sylvan in Santa Cruz years ago, they wanted too much and I passed. Dumb. Should have paid it and left with a lifer.

Awesome photos! Those open tuners look so nice and shiny I’d be afraid to touch them. That is a slick looking guitar.

LOL - you should always be thinking about the next guitar! Congrats! They are great instruments - just picked up a ‘96 myself this past week...this is now my fourth and hopefully I don’t make the mistake of selling this one!

Enjoy!

Nice get!

I bagged a '99 in minty condition about a month ago and I'm really pleased with it.

I actually like the mod V neck.
