Country/Region of Manufacture: United States UPC: Does not apply  - 619-201-2781 Lovies Guitars is offering up this incredible Martin D-28 Marquis. Such an amazing guitar. I play thousands of acoustic guitars, and damn, this thing just rattled though my chest at first strum. What a perfect acoustic guitar. Martin Really nailed this one. As all Martin guitars, this guitar is a master crafted guitar. It sounds absolutely incredible and has a great dynamic and rich tone thanks to that opening and richening of top tier woods used. Martin is a legendary guitar company and is so due to its detailed and expert craftsmanship. This beauty was purchased as a gift for an expecting husband who loved it but did not play it as he was more of an electric player. Strummed on a few times to appreciate its soul and put back safely in case. Near MINT, maybe just a few micro marks from being lightly handled the past 12 years. Please see tons of pics below. The guitar is all original. Includes original hard Case, strap button and key.Call Derick Anytime: 619-201-2781
14 Day Money back return policy. Buy with confidence. Crafted to evoke the same powerful tone and sonorous projection as a pre-WWII D-28, the Martin D-28 Marquis Acoustic Guitar differs only by using the much less scarce, and therefore more affordable, Indian rosewood instead of Brazilian rosewood. Using only premium-grade solid Indian rosewood for the back and sides and a solid Adirondack spruce top, the Marquis Guitar delivers powerful sounds with scalloped Adirondack spruce braces and forward-shifted X-bracing. A special aging toner gives the wood a vintage countenance.The list of historically accurate details, nearly overwhelming and totally exhaustive, captures the authentic spirit of the Martin D-28: mahogany blocks/dovetail neck joint construction, slot-through saddle, herringbone binding, neck dart, zipper back marquetry, ivoroid binding, herringbone top trim, Waverly butterbean tuners, and old-style wood fiber rosette.The Martin D-28 Marquis also has a beveled and polished tortoise pickguard; ebony bridge with long saddle; modified V-shaped neck; ebony fretboard (1-3/4" nut, 25-2/5" scale) with diamond and square inlays; and fossil ivory nut, saddle, and bridgepins (with black dots).The Martin D-28 Marquis Acoustic Guitar is a lovingly crafted Indian rosewood version of the discontinued D-28GE.Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.FEATURES
