Serial # 1734508. The 000-28VS captures the essence of one of Martin's rarest models - the steel string long scale 12 fret 000-28 built in the late 1920's. The combination of the guitar's large body and 12 fret bridge placement make for an otherworldly playing experience. The tone is big, bold, and balanced, with wonderful overtones and incredible resonance. This two year old example has opened up nicely over its short life.
Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top with scalloped braces and herringbone purfling. Ivoroid bound body, zigzag back strip, and pyramid bridge with through-saddle. 12 fret neck with ebony fingerboard, slotted diamond inlays; slotted headstock with old-style logo and Waverly open-geared tuners; bone nut and saddle. Modified V neck carve, 1-13/16" nut width, 25.4" scale.
The guitar is in lovely condition, and plays easily. It was originally sold through Folkway when new, and is well set-up as such. No cracks or repairs, and next to no fretwear. There are a few minor nicks on the body finish, and two small spots left on the guitar’s back from a rubber guitar stand.
