Martin Standard Series 00-28 2019 with Original Hardshell Case
Summary: This small bodied Martin has got that old time tone with the scalloped X braces and that famous Martin smell as soon as you open the case! The herringbone purfling around the top is just beautiful and the rosewood back and sides make for fabulous note clarity and projection. It is in excellent used condition and it has an added Fishman soundhole pickup! It has just been setup with a new set of 12s by our in house luthier and ships in its original hardshell case.

Cosmetics: This Martin is in excellent used condition and has been played with the upmost care. There are some light scratches on the pickguard and a few very light scratches around the body if you hold it up in the right light but there are no dings, cracks, breaks or major cosmetic issues to mention.
