Made for Martin Employee Floyd Young who worked for Martin from 1926 into the 1930s. A very cool combination of appointments.Since Employee Guitars had to deviate from standard model specs , Lloyd made a 00-28 , with herringbone, style 28 backstrip, pyramid bridge and ivoroid binding, but with a very high grade of mahogany for the back and sides. The guitar remains in lovely original condition, with only one tiny repaired top crack below the bridge ( barely visible and hard to photograph). Dated and signed “ Floyd Young , May 1, 1929 “.Sweet open sound .
