Vintage 1949 Martin OO -28G with Sitka Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood
Vintage 1949 Martin 00-28G
Brazilian Rosewood Martin guitars have been appreciating as fast as anything in the guitar market and it won't be long before the small body guitars catch up. Right now they are still a great value as this beauty proves. This Martin OO features a gorgeous set of Brazilian and has been maintained well. Playability is great and it sure is a joy to hold this little terror. A great part of Martin history this is one for both the player and the collector looking to add to their collection.
This instrument features a Sitka Spruce Top and gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The Brazilian rosewood on this in instrument is more figured on the sides, and the back shows wonderful bookmatched figuring. This guitar comes equipped with an ebony fingerboard and bridge as well as white body binding.
The guitar is in excellent playable condition. The tone of this instrument is wonderful. It stands up to many other Martin guitars of the period for Brazilian rosewood warmth. While intentionally not built for concert hall volume, the bass tone and clarity of the trebles on large-bodied Martin nylon strings guitars with Brazilian back and sides is unsurpassed.
Being a Vintage guitar, there were no adjustable truss rods in Martin guitars back in 1968. Adjustments must be made either to the bridge saddle height, or by either a neck re-set or planing down the fingerboard. This guitars neck is straight and the string height is at the ideal level of 4/32" on the Low E and 7/64" on the High E.
