Player's Perspective

This is it, the quintessential Martin guitar - the D-28 is an icon. Back in all its glory as part of the Standard series, this is the iconic post-war D-28 that is undoubtedly what we all think of when we reflect on this classic guitar. 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.

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!

Details

Sometimes innovation is in the details and this is certainly true with Martin’s re-imagined D-28. After nearly a century at the helm, and as the quintessential workhorse of music legends like Hank Williams, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and so many more, Martin's legendary D-28 has been lovingly and artfully enhanced. “The post WWII D-28 had a slightly different look than its predecessor and became the centerpiece of the folk and folk rock movements at their pinnacle in the 1950s and 1960s." says Chris Martin, Chairman and CEO of Martin Guitar, "We have extracted the finest features from the D-28 of both my grandfather’s and my father’s respective eras.” The all new D-28 blends the rich history of the guitar with Martin’s newest and most heralded innovations. The 184 year old guitar maker has combined vintage appointments, including open gear tuners, an aged toner top, antique white accents, and a faux tortoise pickguard with a new neck profile to give D-28 enthusiasts a modern feel and comfortable playing experience. Martin has also added forward-shifted bracing to allow greater vibration of the top. The legend just got better.
