Only played one '30s 000-28 but it was very impressive. One of the best guitars I've ever played. Sounds like you got a great one. Enjoy!

I was told they were not designed for steel strings, they are 1/4" braced. Many of the necks are also not reinforced. That said, Dave said Martin often would string them with steel by request. Silk and steel or extra lights should be...

Back from Dave's.... Well, all in all it looks like solid example. There is evidence of it having been oversprayed but it has not been refinished. The bridge and bridge plate appear to be original as do the frets and nut. Definitely...

Got a PM saying that based on the serial number the neck block was stamped sometime between 2-3&13-1923 and it was shipped to the Dealer on 3-31-1923. It was returned to Martin for warranty work in 1929 but no details as to why....

It appears to have been set up for steel strings from the factory. Has steel strings on it and the nut and bridge do not appear to have been modified. Dave will be able to tell me more I'm sure. It came with it's original chipboard...

Neil, is there a link available to that article? I assume that your guitar was built by the father. I had one about 45 years ago that was built probably in the 50s by the son. How can you date these guitars? The only way I knew it was...

Re: Except for my 000-28EC I think all of my Martins are "discontinued".... (reply)
