    1953 Martin D-28 Natural Acoustic Guitar, #129794. All original finish with weather checking. Nicks and scratches from being professionally played for a number of years.

Very straight neck with low worn original frets. Back binding has gap at bass side waist area. Maple bridge plate is original with two bridge bolt holes. DeArmond soundhole pickup with jack added on bass side and one at end pin. Worthy of a professional restoration. Non-original hard case included. Condition: Good. Price Guide Value $13,000
