We’ve been fortunate enough to auction of no fewer than four guitars in support of hurricane relief, but we can still help out a lot more. We’re going to keep the momentum going by auctioning a fifth guitar! This time we’ve got a vintage classic: our 1969 Martin D-28. This guitar is being offered in an online auction to provide aid to those affected. 25% of the final bid will go to this fundraiser as a tax-deductible donation: This guitar was originally $5,295, but we’re starting the bidding at only $3,750. Please email your bids to In the order that we receive bids, we will update the current price above. Bids within the U.S., please. The auction will close at 12pm EST Sunday, November 25th. Once the donation is finalized, we will ship you the guitar for free! Thank you for helping out!

1969 was a very good year to be a Martin D-28--this newly restored Dreadnought has miles and miles of sweet tunes behind it, and many miles yet before it. All the superlatives which made Martin guitars legendary--their thunderous projection, warmth, clarity, and depth--are out in full force once you tune this D-28 up to pitch.

Flatpickers! You have no idea how clean and energetic a tone you can get from the Sitka Spruce top on this guitar, almost without trying. If you're interested in a beautiful piece of guitar history that's optimized for flatpicking Bluegrass, Blues, and anything in between, we'd recommend taking this Martin for a spin. Brazilian Rosewood was becoming increasingly scarce by 1969, so we were happily surprised to find such an excellent set for the back and sides on this Dread. Do yourself a favor and come play this D-28 before it goes!
