The 0-28vs Grand Concert guitar achieves one of the highest levels of class when it comes to acoustic guitars.
These plans portray the vintage features of this classic guitar model, which was produced by CF Martin pre-WWII. Build this guitar and you will be building a very iconic instrument that could reach collector status, if you are up for the challenge.
The 0-28vs is the smallest body size of the 28vs series, with the 00 and 000 being the larger body guitars. One strum on this guitar and you will not be able to put it down. It makes for a fine fingerpicking guitar as well as a flatpick guitar and will only sound better as it ages.
If you wish to match vintage wood specs for this model, use an premium Sitka Spruce top, and Indian Rosewood sides and back, which will match the tonal quality of the original model produced. Add to this a fine Ebony fretboard and bleached bone nut and saddle and you will have an incredible sounding instrument. You can choose whether to use the original grained ivoriod binding or go with wood bindings - your choice. Also, although a challenge, the V-joint neck and slotted headpiece brings vintage quality to this guitar.
