2016 Martin 000-28 Ambertone

This strikingly attractive Martin 000-28 Ambertone features the company’s very popular C-shaped neck carve with 1-11/16” nut of days gone by, 24.9” scale, and modern 2-1/8” string spread. Martin revamped all of their model specs at the end of 2016, and modern 000-28s feature entirely different neck geometry.

This 000-28 has been upgraded with Gotoh SX510 vintage style tuners, Antique Acoustics bridge pins, a Schatten Design bridge plate, transducing pickup with soundhole mounted volume and tone controls, and a compensated bone saddle. There are strap buttons added into the neck heel and the endgraft, above the endpin jack.

The guitar remains in excellent condition and shows very little playwear to the finish and frets. There is a factory-repaired top center-seam that was well hidden when the guitar was new, but 8 years on has become slightly visible over 2” near the endblock. The binding has been cleanly reglued along 3 waist sections, and the set-up is comfortably adjusted for fingerstyle playing, with an action of 4-6 64ths at the 12th fret.

Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka top with straight X bracing, white bindings and checkerboard backstrip. Gloss body finish, satin neck finish, gold foil headstock logo, bone nut.

With original hardshell case
