Overview

Curly Koa, Herringbone trim, flush frets, all original, excellent condition

This flawless Hawaiian version of the 28 model looks stunning with it's well aged chocolaty Koa wood. With its highly figured koa body, herringbone style 28 trim, attractive wooden purflings, This Martin 0-28K is just magical in it's appearance and makes it easy to fall head over heels for!  It plays better than most brand new guitars, and has the dry and slightly bright, open, and piano-like cavernous tone that defines these lightly built all-koa Martins. The golden hue of a younger variation of Koa wood has become an almost dark chocolatey tone. This only happens with a well aged Koa wood. But it's color tone is not monotone from this, but has an enhanced richness and almost relfective mother-of-pearl luminiscent appearance.

The guitar is in exceptional condition.  There are no cracks, and the finish is gorgeous.
