A well-balanced, highly percussive Grand Concert sure to please for years.
Martin’s 00-28 Grand Concert was created for the player that is searching for an instrument with a balanced sound, crystal-clear high end, controlled mids, and just the right amount of bass. To generate the tone, the 00-28 begins with a Sitka spruce top. Sitka is famous for its percussive attack and durability. Martin selected East Indian rosewood to add the right amount of bass to the sound of the top, and like all style 28 Martin guitars; the solid neck was hand fit using a dovetail neck joint. The dovetail neck joint is a technique that is found on most of the world’s finest hand crafted violins, cellos, and double basses. What does the neck joint do to the sound of the instrument? It’s an integral part of the tone and resonance of every musical instrument. With the 00-28, Martin continues the painstaking task of hand-fitting each guitar with a dovetail neck joint to give you the maximum amount of tone and sustain. The neck and body will resonate in harmony as one instrument; unlike instruments that are bright and thin because of bolts connecting the neck to the body. This guitar will ring for days.
Hardshell case included.

This is a Martin S1 Mahogany Soprano Ukulele dated circa 1932-36 in "very good" condition. The tuning pegs have been replaced, but all else is original.
Ukuleles were in highest production from 1916 to the 1930's, though still manufactured in quantity until 1965. Production quantities during some periods were as great as Martin guitars. Martin ukes are considered to be the best for craftsmenship and sound. The Koa wood models are more collectible than mahagony models. The fancier style 5 models are worth more than plainer styles 0 to 3. All sizes are collectible.
The first Martin ukes, built in 1916, have serial numbers ranging from one to less than 200. Ukes made after 1916 do not have serial numbers and must be dated by specification changes.
Ukes have the Martin stamp on the back of the peghead until 1935. Peghead decals do not appear in catalog photos till after WWII.

Introduced in 1965, the Martin D-35 featured a unique, 3-piece back (wings are Brazilian, center is East Indian Rosewood). Brazilian rosewood was becoming harder to acquire and the three piece backs allowed the use of smaller pieces with no noticeable tone loss. Bob Johnson, who was hired in 1962 as a computer expert, later becoming a vice president of the company, came up with the idea of a three piece back, since Martin had a surplus of 6 inch sections. After a new bracing pattern was worked out, the D-35 was born! A favorite of Elvis, the D-35 was outselling the popular D-28 model within a few years of it's release.
The Martin 1970 D-35 was one of the last Martin's to use Brazilian Rosewood, resulting in a significant price drop in all models featuring Brazilian Rosewood. Brazilian Rosewood was, and is the most highly regarded wood for back and sides and was primarily used on the early pre-war guitars that we all love. Known for rich basses and crystal clear highs, as well as it's gorgeous figuring. This particular guitar has a wonderful crisp, dry tone. Very reminiscent of a 50's D28. Lots of definition and clarity with this one! With a sitka spruce top, it still remains highly responsive, perfect for fingerstyle players, or flatpicking lead lines.
This D-35 is a vintage instrument thus having very minor dings and scratches you would expect from a 46 year old instrument along with finish checking on the front of the body and some buckle rash on the back of the body. This is a very clean VINTAGE instrument. Brand new molded Martin hardshell case included.

Sometimes innovation is in the details and this is certainly true with Martin’s re-imagined D-28. After nearly a century at the helm, and as the quintessential workhorse of music legends like Hank Williams, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and so many more, Martin's legendary D-28 has been lovingly and artfully enhanced. “The post WWII D-28 had a slightly different look than its predecessor and became the centerpiece of the folk and folk rock movements at their pinnacle in the 1950s and 1960s." says Chris Martin, Chairman and CEO of Martin Guitar, "We have extracted the finest features from the D-28 of both my grandfather’s and my father’s respective eras.” The all new D-28 blends the rich history of the guitar with Martin’s newest and most heralded innovations. The 184 year old guitar maker has combined vintage appointments, including open gear tuners, an aged toner top, antique white accents, and a faux tortoise pickguard with a new neck profile to give D-28 enthusiasts a modern feel and comfortable playing experience. Martin has also added forward-shifted bracing to allow greater vibration of the top. The legend just got better!
Martin exclusively debuts a new pickup and preamp, the Aura® VT Enhance™ acoustic amplification by Fishman®, which offers the most advanced technology, Aura Acoustic Imaging, to preserve the unique and pristine acoustic tone of each instrument with studio microphone quality. In addition, the new streamlined Matrix VT Enhance™ will be offered on select models.
Both the Aura® VT Enhance™ with Acoustic Imaging and the Matrix VT Enhance™ feature a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the amplified tone of the guitar.
With no control holes cut into the side of your guitar, Aura VT and Matrix VT Enhance is discreet and simple to use with Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls inside the sound hole and at your fingertips.
The result is a sound that is pure Martin, with more responsiveness to your playing dynamics and touch.
How it works:
Fishman’s new Enhance Transducer is a bridge plate transducer that is mechanically and electrically optimized to bring out the dynamic and percussive elements of guitar playing.
The Enhance Transducer is specially designed to capture the longitudinal energy (dynamic and percussive attack) of the guitar top while being highly resistant to the transverse energy that manifests in string squeak, body handling noise, and parasitic feedback.
The Enhance Transducer adds these characteristics to the full spectrum audio performance of the Aura VT Enhance and Matrix VT Enhance to deliver a new level of sound quality and dynamic playing response.
