An extra special player's instrument that has been owned and much played for 40 years by the current owner, who bought it at Lundberg's in Berkeley. It's had a number of great repairs by Lundberg that are nearly invisible.There's a sign of one crack in the back that's shown up faintly 40 years after the repair. The most visible repair is the oversize bridge, a blot on the otherwise gorgeous aged spruce top. The other work is: two filled holes from knobs from a long lost pickup, that by now have blended with the surrounding original finish gracefully; the slight shaving of the braces, which was a method much touted by Lundberg, its inventor (or discoverer). In the early '60s I actually sent my much loved '56 D-21 with Marc Silber from NY to Berkeley for brace shaving and a neck reset, almost doubling the amount of tone coming out of it. The Brazilian rosewood on this D-28 is as nice as I've ever seen. The years of playing (by its current owner) have loosened up this box into the famous "Herringbone" deep and powerful tone machine, which has to be experienced to be known by all of us guitar geeks and players.
