The Martin 000-28 acoustic guitar shares many features that can be seen on the Eric Clapton signature model - minus the special appointments and with a slightly wider neck - without the heftier price tag. The solid sitka spruce top is secured using the incredibly strong standard "X" bracing pattern, keeping the spruce stable whilst allowing the top to vibrate naturally. Due to its wonderfully resonant properties, the sitka spruce makes an excellent soundboard and projects sound in a consistent and articulate manner.
The back and sides of the 000-28 are made from solid East Indian rosewood, held in high renown due to its high velocity of sound. This means - in much the same way as the sitka spruce - it projects sound robustly and consistently. The combination of these tonewoods gives the 000-28 a fantastic ability to project sound with little to no effort at all, vastly increasing the dynamic range of the instrument - perfect for guitarist who require a guitar that can articulate the nuances of their playing most accurately.
To ensure the body is protected from unwanted damage, the edges are bound in white boltaron. A layer of polished gloss protects the entire body from unwanted marks, rubbing or scratches without impeding the tonewood's vibrations.
Only select hardwood is used to build the neck, in order to create a solid channel for the strings to resonate. A solid black ebony fingerboard rests atop the neck, playing home to 20 desirable frets. The neck shape is cut to a low profile and the fingerboard radius is a mere 1-11/16" at the nut to 2-1/8" at the 12th fret. This means that for those with smaller hands or seek a narrower playing surface without losing out to a less powerful body, can have the best of both worlds.
Chrome enclosed tuning machines ensure that each string's tuning integrity is maintained throughout each performance. The belly style solid black ebony bridge ensures the string's connection to the body remains true, giving you utter confidence in the 000-28's ability to perform.
The body is protected beneath the soundhole by a decorative and functional black pickguard, reducing the chances of nicking or scraping the sitka spruce whilst playing.
