Some important structural features 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 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 was purchased new from us in 2013 by one of our longtime customers who has developed a growing passion for fine instruments in recent years, and, as he plays left-handed, and as our inventory of left-handed instruments is very limited, he has special ordered many instruments that have attracted his interest. And from time to time he will trade in one of his instruments to help fund a new acquisition - this splendid 000-28VS "lefty" is one such example. Like all of his guitars, this instrument has been meticulously maintained and is in superb condition, both cosmetically and structurally. Thus, its look, feel, and sound are pristine.
In addition, the guitar has been upgraded with bone bridge pins and a K&K Pure Mini pickup with a volume control, professionally installed here at Maple Street Guitars.
This guitar includes a deluxe Geib style archtop hardshell case. (used)
