Martin's 000-28c model was introduced as a nylon-string counterpart to the 000-28 in 1962, and here's one from that first year! This guitar features an incredible set of Brazilian rosewood for the back and sides. Like other Martin classical guitars, the 000-28c has a longer, sloped shoulder design, similar to a pre 1934 000-28. This one comes with its original bill of sale and tags, in its original Lifton case, in very clean condition. All parts of the guitar are original, and recent repairs include a bridge reglue and back crack repair.
