From Martin –
“If you want the comfort and character of Martin's 00 body style with unrivalled elegance and top-notch appointments, then the 00-28 is an outstanding acoustic. This beautiful instrument features an East Indian rosewood back and sides topped with Sitka spruce, giving you outstanding tone and projection — even with the undersized 00 body style. A smooth, ebony fingerboard with diamond and square inlays feels comfortable and instantly playable in your hands. The 00-28 is another outstanding, classic Martin acoustic that represents the 185-year tradition of a company committed to time-tested design and quality.
The acoustic tone of solid spruce and genuine rosewood are now the stuff of legend — balanced, warm, and robust. The Martin 00-28 series spares no expense on its tonewoods. You'll love the crisp sound of the 00-28's solid East Indian rosewood back and sides and fall in love with its gorgeous look. The 00-28 is topped with solid Sitka spruce, adding rich and mellow overtones, beautifully crisp high end and even midrange.”

This beautiful 00-28 embodies the rich classic sound of authentic East Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce, bound in bold herringbone with vintage appointments. The resonant scalloped bracing allows natural harmonics and woody tone to bloom with every note.
The 00 acoustic body style is known for a great balance between bass and treble without the excessive bass overtones or woofiness you can sometimes get from larger body styles. They are also known as great live performance guitars that don't feedback where other larger body styles sometimes do. Many Martin players prefer a 00-28 to the company’s D series guitars for this reason.
This 00-28 was bought new by its one owner last year and has hardly been out of its case. The only sign of this being played at all is some very faint pick swirls on the guard. Not a mark or blemish anywhere to be seen. For all intents, this guitar is in as new, mint condition. It is a treasure to look at and a dream to play.
Comes in its original Martin hard case in new condition.
