Player's Perspective

The D-28 is an icon. It's been defining steel string acoustic guitar tone for almost 100 years, and you'd be hard pressed to find a guitarist or group that hasn't been influenced by the D-28 in some way. This HD model adds a classic herringbone inlay to the timeless design. Sonically, this is one of the guitars that wrote the book on great dreadnought sound. There's a delicious, potent low-end that you can really feel when you strum a big chord. But the highs are equally detailed, crisp and subtle, providing a wonderfully balanced and expressive acoustic voice that you have to hear to believe. The neck shape is comfortable and smooth, and the fretboard ride is effortless whether you're a folk singer who will be hanging out in the first position most of the time or a country soloist who will lean into some soulful bends. This modern installment of a timeless guitar will be with you as long as you're making music.

Special Features

This iconic HD-28 fuses classic, inimitable Martin construction with great aesthetics and tops it all off with a supremely comfortable neck. First things first - the top of this guitar is solid Sitka spruce and the sides and back are solid East Indian rosewood. This is a tried and true tonewood pairing for acoustic guitars that provides balanced projection and nuanced subtlety. It's a perfect match for the dreadnought body style, which naturally sculpts the low end. What's under the hood of this iconic guitar is just as important as what you can see. Beneath the top, the solid Sitka spruce braces are arranged in a standard scalloped "X" pattern. This allows the top to vibrate more freely without compromising strength. It has a distinctly more pronounced tonal character than non-scalloped guitars. The dovetail neck joint is crucial to this guitar's sound and stability as well.

This is an iconic instrument that's every bit as musical, playable and relevant as ever. Perfect for the Martin aficionado or simply anyone on the hunt for the real deal dreadnought sound.
