Martin, C.F.: 000-28VS

(Item ID: 000-28VS    Serial#: 2065514)

Martin, C.F. 000-28VS 000 12-Fret Slot-Head with Rosewood and Spruce and K&K Pickup with Volume Control

Some important structural changes found in the Vintage Series Martin guitars have made them, arguably, the very best guitars for the money that Martin produces, that is, if sound quality is what matters most. The 000-28V revisits the engineering design of the pioneer models referred to as pre-war Martins.

Three important structural features distinguish this Vintage model. The 000-28V has a fuller, modified V-shaped neck, thinner 1/4" scalloped tone bars, and a forward shifted "X" brace. The scalloped top braces and forward shifted "X" both serve to relax the top in a way that opens up the instruments voice yielding a deeper bass, a more broad mid range, and a loose, free, clear treble. And the more substantial V-shaped neck seems to help anchor the foundation of the sound, perhaps by keeping more vibrational energy in the sound box.

Martins use of these features has imbued the modern 000-28V with tonal attributes for which the older, classic originals are revered - strength, depth, body, balance, and clarity. With the excellent modern build quality, these guitars will survive to become classics in their own right.


This guitar includes a deluxe Cedar Creek archtop hardshell case.
