I've been playing guitar for over 30 years now, and while I have spent enough on acoustics and electrics to have bought one, time and tide never seemed to have me in a position to get the one guitar that has occupied the top slot of my GAS list since...well, before I knew what a GAS list was ;-). The venerable Martin D28. I've come close to snagging one a few times, but I either didn't have the free funds or wasn't happy with the one I had in my hands when I could pay for it.

I picked this beauty up last night after selling that Morgan CVM I had...a very fine instrument itself, but I only traded for it to unload a guitar I didn't like and to serve as a means to an end. That end - a 2005 Martin D28 in excellent condition. It has been to a talented luthier for a proper set-up (albeit for 12's, which will be remedied today since it has Elixirs on it). I'll be picking up JP 13's today to swap on. The finish has aged beautifully, the set-up is absolutely spot-on, I can rip up and down the neck like it's a Tele, and the response to playing dynamics is amazing - sombre to thunder in a slight attack change.

Those are great guitars, I have a D18 myself but it doesn't have that low end that a D28 has. Congratulations.

The D-28 is hard to beat. Enjoy!
