Serial Numbers Used To Date Martin Guitars are found on the neck block. Looking inside the soundhole and toward the neck you will find the serial number and model stamped on the neck block.
How do you tell what year a Martin guitar was made?
The number in the left-side column is the year, and the number following the year is the last serial number used in that given year. Serial number 8349 for example, would be the first guitar built in 1899.
What are the best years for Martin d28?
are: 1937, 1939, 1940, 1950, 1953, 1954, 1962 and 1969. None of the guitars on this list are inexpensive. To answer the question you didnt ask, the D-28 1937 authentics (I prefer the pre-baked) are the best sounding and best value in a modern Martin guitar.
What is the difference between Martin and 000?
A 00 has the same depth as a 000, but the slightly smaller top brings all the frets a little closer to the body. They are ideal for smaller guitarists, or people who want a petite playmate for their larger guitars.
