Here is a nice example of a postwar 00028. It has a narrower 1 11/16″ nut and sitka spruce over Brazilian rosewood with the shorter scale length. This guitar has had some work performed on it listed below. However, it still remains a good example of a post war 00028.

    Repairs: 

  1. Top oversprayed
  2. 2 top cracks [repaired]
  3. Replacement bridge
  4. Replacement pickguard
  5.
