The Martin D-28 acoustic guitar is a highly revered dreadnought that is coveted by players the world over. As you'd expect from Martin, a company who have been building beautifully crafted instruments since 1833 and pioneered the dreadnought as we know it, the D-28 is built to an exceptional standard of quality, with appointments to suit professional players both in the studio and on the stage.
The body of the D-28 has been crafted using solid East Indian rosewood for the back and sides, which gives this model a powerful mid to low-end drive. Married to the rosewood is a solid Sitka spruce top, a highly resonant tonewood that makes a fantastic soundboard due to its superb ability to project a highly articulate output. As solid woods have been employed throughout, you can rest assured that the more you play this model, the greater the chance the tonewoods have to age and develop their own unique flavour. To add further beauty, the top comes complete with white boltaron body binding, and the back contains black and white boltaron binding to create a seamlessly blended finish.
The 25.4" scale length select hardwood neck of the D-28 is crafted to a low profile for maximum comfortability during performances. Married to the neck is a sumptuous feeling solid ebony fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets (with 14 clear of the body), complete with Martin's style 28 position inlays. The satin finish across the neck not only looks great and preserves that look for as long as possible, but makes the neck fast and smooth to play.
The headstock proudly displays Martin's logo in raised gold foil, whilst housing chrome-enclosed tuners with large buttons that uphold tuning integrity meticulously. The bone nut maintains string tension for a uniform playing feel during performances, whilst the solid black ebony bridge creates a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimum intonation.
The Martin D-28 dreadnought acoustic guitar is an outstanding instrument, built by a team who are renowned for constructing models that often outlive their owners. If you're looking for a partner for life, and who will only get better with age, then look no further than this beautiful acoustic.
