Subject: RE: Martin HD 28
I have a 1977 HD 28 which I bought new, I had it set up after about 2 years and had a new nut and saddle made from bone. It has played great ever since and stays in tune for weeks at a time, over the years it has only had one other small set up and is now due for another.

One other problem many people have had with these guitars is a small crack in the top from the pickguard to the bridge, mine has not had this problem but know of quite a few that have.

Stick with it, I'm sure it can be fixed and when it is you'll have a wonderful instrument.
