Tell me about this guitar

Pretty broad question. It's a parlour guitar, made in China. They are very highly regarded, well built, and can be used for most acoustic applications, though I've heard fingerstyle players especially like the tonality. Solid spruce top, rosewood sides, and a 3 piece rosewood/maple back, with a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. It's got a 1 11/16 nut and a nice TP4T electronics package.

If you want more information on that specific guitar, email Tak with your serial number, and they will give you a production date.

What does the serial number 171756 on a Martin D28 Guitar mean?

That serial number would correspond to a guitar built in 1959. The model will be either be stamped on the neck block seen from inside the guitar or on the label visible through the sound hole. Martin's phone number is 610-759-2837 and they may be able to provide more specific info.

For model years 1970 to 1979, the only information available is the first and last serial number produced- no model names or numbers are available. 1973 serial numbers are 75603 to 95496, so your guitar serial number would be towards the end of 1973 in Westerly, RI.

The value is hard to say- the instruments from that era can be valuable: instruments of that era have sold on EBay from between $800.00 to over $2,000.

As always, it's worth exactly what someone will pay for it- Good luck!

Acoustic top crack

Your best bet is to send it back to Martin. Normally the top can be repaired if it's a linier crack along the grain line, but to do the job correctly the top will need to be re-finished. Plus if the crack is more complicated, like if the bracing is involved it's best to pay the ptrice to get it done right.

I pressume that martin thinline preamp pick up has two pick ups ?

your pressumption would be correct. The Thinline 332 runs under the bridge saddle, and the Piezo is attached ti the inside of the guitar body, tilt your guitar and have a look inside, you may be able to see it.

I have a 1996 Martin D42. The top is caving in slightly. It seems the scalloped bracing is scalloped too much and the back half of the top is being pushed down by the pressure on the bridge. Any...

You should take it to a Luthier to get an estimate for repairing it before the damage becomes unrepairable. Also verify you are using the CORRECT tension strings.
