C. F. Martin 000-28 Custom Shop Model Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (2014), made in Nazareth, PA, serial # 1844219, sunburst top, natural back and sides finish, Indian rosewood back and sides, torrefied Adirondack spruce top, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, original black hard shell case.

This lovely "Shade Top" 000-28 is a creation of Martin's custom shop. It has a very attractive dark shaded sunburst finish on the top, which is made of torrefied Adirondack spruce. The back and sides are very straight-grain Indian rosewood. There is herringbone trim around the top and sound hole, with a chain backstrip. The neck has a rounded "V" profile; the unbound ebony fingerboard is inlaid in pearl with a slotted diamond pattern. This is one of the nicest recent-vintage Martins we have had. A very versatile guitar and a delight to play and hear.
Overall length is 39 7/8 in. (101.3 cm.), 15 in. (38.1 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 4 1/16 in. (10.3 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 24 3/4 in. (629 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/4 in. (44 mm.).

This splendid guitar was built in 2014 and appears to have seen very little use since. The pickguard has some small pick markings on it and the finish a few tiny scuffs and dings, but overall there are few signs of wear. There are no repairs and the only alteration is a strap button added to the heel. This is a great-playing, very traditionally styled Martin with a huge sound. Includes the original case with some paperwork, including the warranty card and unopened "care and feeding" booklet. Excellent + Condition.
