Martin D28 1968 Brazilian Rosewood with Original case

Martin D28 1968 Brazilian Rosewood with Original case. Guitar looks like it's been over sprayed on the top, but I didn't do it so not sure. It has about 4 side cracks on the upper bass side and one very small hair line on the upper back next to the side cracks, very hard to see but they are there. There is also a small missing piece of finish on the back of the neck, see last pic.

It has no other cracks that I can see. Bridge has a slight belly up, pins are non original ebony, but you can have the white Martin plastic ones as well. Guitar action is excellent, as good if not better than any acoustic guitar I have, the neck appears to have never been re-set and non is needed. Guitar black lights perfectly, as does the top, but as I said (above), the top may have been over sprayed but if it was it was a long time ago.

The back has some finish damage from a plastic guitar strap being in the case under the guitar that reacted with the lacquer finish, common for this period. The pick guard may not be original because it's tortoise shell, I believe Martin was using solid black pick guards by 1968. Bridge and all else appears to be original.

The bridge plate (inside the guitar) is rosewood, original to 1968. Let me know if you need more info or pictures. Im NOT a dealer; Im just liquidating some of my personal stuff.
