Description1932 Martin OM-28 Natural Acoustic Guitar, Serial # 49937. Very desirable to collectors and players alike. In spite of the significant playwear and finish checking, this guitar remains in very good structural condition. Checking, gauges and arm wear to the top but no cracks. Original bridge has been reglued and has lifted a minor amount at the treble foot. Minor cracks in the ebony between pins and on the bass foot. Two very small and tight side cracks. No back cracks. Neck has been cleanly and professionally reset. The neck finish is worn off to about the 10th fret. The inside of the guitar is clean and not tampered with. The bridge plate is original. The tuners are G-98 Grover's from about 1937-1939. The case is original and in very good condition. The wear on this fine guitar is "honest wear". No signs of damage or amateur fix ups. Original hard case included. Condition: Good.
