Product Description

The Martin D28 Acoustic Guitar is the Professional Musicians choice for its powerful resonance and volume.
The gorgeous large dreadnought body produces a strong bass response without disturbing the clarity of the treble strings. Features of the Martin D28 include a solid Sitka spruce top, solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides, a mahogany low-profile neck, ebony fingerboard, polished gloss finish and M6 chrome tuning gears.

Price includes Martin molded case.

Martin Standard Series
Martin launched this much imitated Standard Series line nearly a century ago and set the standard for all modern acoustic guitars—starting with the Dreadnought, a shape that Martin first built in 1916 to provide a bigger, richer guitar sound at a time when there was no amplification, for the accompaniment of singers in larger settings, including auditoriums.

These instruments constitute the historic core of the Martin line and represent the majority of sizes and styles that have evolved during this century. The Standard Series models are known for resonant warmth of tone with tastefully restrained styling. For the most part, Martin is credited with inventing these styles and shapes, and guitar makers in general have moved to adopt Martin’s size designations as the standard for the industry.

Standard features for the Standard Series generally include solid wood top, back, and sides, polished gloss finish, and a hand-fit dovetail neck attachment.

About Martin Guitars
For well over a century and a half, the Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world.

The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.'s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker's craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power.

Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially in evidence today at Martin's expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

Overall Rating
Classic Martin
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Martin changed the D28 to straight bracing in the mid to late 1940's it is the flagship of the Martin line and a classic. It has stood the test of time and remains one of best selling acoustic dreads of all time. The sound is clear ,crisp and powerful workmanship is outstanding. It's at home playing bluegrass,folk,rock or country music. Some guitar players in my circle hold the belief an acoustic has to have scalloped bracing to have that sound you need today but once they hear my D28 or play it the quickly change there minds. Martin knows how to build a straight braced acoustic since they have been doing it for 65 years and they put all that experience into today's D28. Mine was bought from AMS and I am very pleased with there service.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
There is no better quality than an American made Martin. The D28 is outstanding for any type of music. I play bluegrass, folk,country and rock with mine. Flat picking,strumming or finger style it is great.
Was it easy to reach the strings? How comfortable was the playing position?
The D28 is so smooth and easy to play. Martin uses a high tech pleck machine in setting up the action. Now days they come near perfect out of the box. Seeing every player is different however you may need a slight adjustment to get the way you like . Mine came 3/32in low E 12th fret and 2/32in high E 12th fret. That will make most people happy.
Is the tone well balanced? How does it project?
The D28 has the best balanced sound out there today. It can project loud and powerful or sweet and soft.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Martins finish is perfect it it beautiful .
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
You get what you pay for. As you go up the Martin lineup you pay more. Look what a30 year old D28 sells for. Imports never increase in value like Martins do.
How was the action out of the box?
Action is good for most styles of playing. As I stated above Martin now uses a high tech pleck machine to help set the action. My D28 was 3/32in low E 12th fret and 2/32in high E 12th fret out of the box.
