Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting…

A beautiful, hardly played, 2013 Martin Custom Shop for Elderly Instruments HD-28 Guitar with original Hardshell Case.

This beautiful instrument was part of a lot of 10 that Elderly Instruments of Lansing MI commissioned Martin’s Custom Shop to build specifically for them. It is a special run of guitars just for Elderly.

The guitar has a beautiful Adirondack Spruce Top with very pronounced grain lines, Scalloped Braces, Ebony Fret board and bridge, Rosewood back and sides, upgraded Butterbean Martin Tuners, and enlarged fret markers at the 5th, 7th and 9th frets. Very special woods were selected just for this special run of guitars from the Martin Custom Shop. It is incredibly beautiful. It is stamped Martin Custom Shop inside the guitar on the neck heel. I have never seen a Custom Shop by Martin Guitar. Very impressive!

As nice as it looks, it sound amazing. Very crisp highs and mid range, yet the bass is very balanced. I could play this guitar all day. Very easy playing action with the neck angle being perfect. It doesn’t appear that the bridge saddle has been sanded. Still plenty of height should it need to be lowered some day. Not now. It plays great!

Heres what the Martin Website has to say about the Standard HD-28 Guitars…

Considered by many players to be the best-sounding of all Martin guitars.

The Martin HD-28 Standard Dreadnought Acoustic is the re-creation of Martin's legendary herringbone style 28 guitars. It has a Sitka spruce top, solid rosewood back and sides, and mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard. Vintage appointments include herringbone top trim, a traditional zigzag backstrip, and Martin's famous scalloped X-bracing that allows the top to vibrate more freely, yielding a louder, more open tone. Limited lifetime warranty. Includes Hardshell Martin case.

The Hardshell Martin Deluxe Case is as nice as the guitar. A perfect home for your beautiful Martin.

This guitar is fantastic but sold as is no returns. However, I have been hand picking my customers instruments for over 18 years now and they all loved the guitars I found them. This incredible Martin will certainly not be and exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
