At Martin Guitars handcrafted instruments built with superior tonewoods and innovative designs represent the high standard for which they are revered. Standard series guitars feature Sitka Spruce tops with Mahogany or Rosewood backs and sides, giving them a massive bottom end with articulate highs and balanced mids. Martin Standard Series guitars continue the tradition of vintage styling and elegant craftsmanship that have made playing a Martin an amazing experience.
The left handed Martin 00-28 Standard Series Grand Concert Acoustic is reminiscent of the early Martin concert acoustics because of its iconic tone and uncanny aesthetics. With a Sitka Spruce top shimmering beneath aging toner, bold herringbone purfling, a tortoise pickguard and antique white binding, this lefty Martin 00-28 carries the iconic aesthetic of Martin grand concert models into a new century. The Sitka Spruce top is combined with East Indian Rosewood sides and back with a 28-style inlay running down the center, giving it a rich tone with surprising bass and wonderful projecting power.
In terms of neck feel, this Grand Concert acoustic leaves nothing to be desired! With a short scale length Mahogany neck with a low-oval profile and a high performance taper, the neck provides the comfort and playability necessary for any style of play. Featuring an ebony fingerboard with diamond and square inlays, this lefty Martin grand concert acoustic is extremely comfortable and fun to play.
Hardware includes an Ebony modern belly bridge with a compensated bone drop-in saddle, a bone nut and nickel open gear tuners for rock solid tuning and accurate intonation.
For a concert size guitar with a shorter scale length, the lefty Martin 00-28 generates a surprising amount of bass! The sitka Spruce top with Rosewood back and sides, coupled with the scalloped bracing, delivers a rich tone with a low bass rumble, sparkling highs and overtones shimmering behind every chord you play. The smaller size gives this southpaw Martin Grand Concert acoustic an unparalleled level of comfort and intimacy, which makes playing this guitar like visiting an old friend. Perfect for performers looking for a concert acoustic with a deep rich tone, superior comfort and excellent playability.
