FOR SALE : 1 of only 50 limited edition Martin Lester Flatt Commemorative Edition D-28LF. These guitars were commissioned and built in 1998 to be exact replicas of the legendary D-28 that Bluegrass legend Lester Flatt played for the majority of his career with Earl Scruggs. They even copied the inlays in the fretboard to be exactly like Lester’s by putting the “LESTER” mother of pearl block and “L • 5” into the fretboard, just like Mike Longworth inlaid into Lester’s.

These guitars are super hard to find, and I have never played one that came as close to the sound of a real 1950 D-28 as this one. I attribute that to the beautifully figured solid Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, and the classic tight grain solid spruce top.

This guitar is dead mint and has been housed in its original vintage Geib style hardcase. It has all the original favorite paperwork, warranty info, and hang tags. It still even has the original strings from the factory installed on the guitar. No cracks, great action, correct relief in the neck, zero fretwear. The neck profile is SUPER comfortable, and the sound is even better! This is an amazing collector piece, along with an absolute HOSS of a guitar!
