1949 Martin D-28 Restoration

Infinity Luthiers is owned and operated by Chris Oliver in Springfield, Illinois. Infinity luthiers builds, repairs and restores guitars, mandolins and other stringed instruments.

This 1949 Martin D-28 arrived to my shop in pieces and covered in mold and mildew. It had been in a flood somewhere in Louisiana. Before the flood, it appears to have been tinkered with by another luthier. The guitar had previously been owned by LeRoy "Happy Fats" LeBlanc, 'the Cajun Hank Williams'.

I completely restored this guitar and now it plays and sounds fantastic. You can read and see more at http://www.infinityluthiers.com/blog/archives/tag/1949-d-28.

This guitar has been sold but please visit our consignment store to view the current stock of instruments available for purchase.
