A Re-imagined Workhorse With Classic Styling, Vintage Tone and Modern Enhancements
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 Martin D-28 Standard Series acoustic guitar has served as the main acoustic guitar of many musical legends such as The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, and has been 'lovingly and artfully enhanced' to deliver the same vintage look and tone with a more modern feel and a higher level of playability.
Featuring all of the classic D-28 appointments that you'd expect, including Sitka Spruce top with highly resonant East Indian Rosewood back and sides, and non-scalloped forward-shifted X-bracing which allows the top to vibrate more freely, the new D-28 delivers the same harmonically complex tone with greater volume, projection and clarity.
Another key to the Martin D-28's enhanced sound and feel is its neck construction. Built with a classic dovetail neck joint, the new D-28 features a modified low oval neck shape with a high performance taper and a 20 fret Ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlays which has a solid yet silky feel that is extremely comfortable and easy to play.
Other premium appointments include a compensated bone saddle with an ebony bridge, an all bone nut and nickel open gear tuners with Butterbean knobs for enhanced tuning stability and rock solid intonation. Also available in Ambertone and 1935 Sunburst for an additional $200.
