    There is a very limited run of these...something like 20...but still...
    I'm curious why a serious collector wouldn't just buy a true vintage Martin
    for 1/2 or 1/3 the price...
    I just wonder how many have actually sold ???

    The 28, 35, 41, and 45 Martin models all have/had ebony fretboards and bridges, not rosewood. Rosewood was only used on 21 and lower models.

    I know... but they were using Brazilian rosewood for the backs and sides.

    You said they used rosewood for the "back, sides, bridges, and fingerboards on regular production D28, D35, D41, and D45 models", and that was just plain wrong.

    Yes, by mentioning those models for having Brazilian on the backs and sides and mentioning bridges and fingerboards in general I was indeed plain wrong.

    Or maybe a pre-war D 28 herringbone...
