I had previously owned both a D41 and a Custom 15, which was sort of like the HD28VR. I had to part with those a view years ago, and this is the first Martin I bought to replenish my supply.
Model Year: 2005
Price: $2800.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Elderly Guitar
Built in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
All rosewood back and sides, spruce top.
I did not buy a model equipped with a pick-up, though such a model is available for an additional $150-200, I believe.
