Vintage 1973 C. F. Martin D12-28 Acoustic Guitar - $2500 (Elkridge, MD)


condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Martin
model name / number: D12-28

This 1973 Martin dreadnought 12 string acoustic guitar is in showroom condition. I am the original and sole owner of this guitar and bought it 46 years ago brand new in March of 1973 at Chuck Levin's Music Center in Wheaton, Maryland. Its serial number is 315790. I had a strap pin professionally installed on the heel of the neck at Chuck Levin's Custom Shop at the time of purchase so I could play the guitar wearing a guitar strap.

This guitar has improved in sound quality over the years and has that large, full, dreadnought sound Martin guitars are famous for. It has a beautifully aged satin finish, 15-3/4" lower bout, spruce top, rosewood 2 piece back and rosewood sides, 14-fret mahogany neck, 20-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl dot inlays, 1-7/8" nut width, 24.9" scale, ebony bridge, white-bound body, black plastic pickguard, and chrome Grover tuners. I have strung it with 12 strings and with just 6 strings and primarily played this guitar in the house and in my home studio. It comes with its original immaculate condition steel blue thermoplastic molded hardshell case with blue lining.

Note: pictures were taken when I had the guitar unstrung for cleaning. It now has a brand new set of 12 strings.
