This appears to be a copy of the Martin HD28 (H=herringbone purfling) dating from 1975. Description translation is a bit off but it should be Jacaranda (now unavailable Brazilian Rosewood) back and sides, with spruce top and ebony fretboard.
This model is not on our web site and I've requested permission from the seller to use his extensive picture documentation listed on Picassa. I'm particularly interested in the cross sectional drawing included of the heel design. In one of the pictures of the inside, there is a shot of the stamp on the heel which reads "Super Neck". Looks like another Mats innovation. New to me.
