Product Description

The Martin HD-28 is the herringbone version of the D-28.
Vintage features include herringbone top trim, a traditional zig-zag backstrip, and Martin’s famous scalloped X-bracing. Its fingerboard is ebony, the body top is solid spruce and the body features solid rosewood, just like the D28.

Other features of the HD28 include a gloss finish, black & white rosette, white binding and a hardshell case is included in the price.

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.

Martin HD-28 $2000.00 Wow
What is your opinion of this product?
I got yet another great deal from American Musical Supply. Bought a dent and scratch for almost $900.00 off, and for the price of a set up. I have a perfect top of the line flawless Martin HD-28. No dents no scratches, just a frett, side fileing, by my favorite luthier. ( lil humidity got the neck to shrink). Don't know about you but I will spend $60.00 to save $840.00 allday long. This is one sweet sounding, great looking, and most comfortable neck guitar, that I own. Thanks American. I have never gotten ripped off by You. This guitar arrived in two days, arrived early Sat., ordered Wednesday. Not a mark or blemish anywhere. Happy, Happy, Happy.

Amazing guitar!!
My Martin HD-28 is extremely well made. Not a flaw anywhere to be seen. Just bought it so can't comment on dependability. But it is a Martin, 'nuff said.

Your general opinion of this product.
Best guitar I've ever owned in over 40 years of playing acoustics. It is like a Martin D-28 on steriods; perfectly balanced and incredibly dynamic and responsive.
The slim profile makes it very easy to play. I had to lower the action and tweak the truss rod a bit though.
Mellow, dark, and round.
Fantastic finish, even though I already made a significant chip through it.
High, had to adjust.

Listen to the Hype
Martin Quality, a company that's been around as long as Martin has got it down pat. I'm sure it will be dependable, haven't had but 3 weeks. It has the Large Grover tuners and they are sweet.
I've only had it 3 weeks so far but with Martins reputation it shouldn't give me a problem. I've read that Martin has great support.
Your general opinion of this product.
Listen to all the Hype about this fine guitar because it's all true. The craftsmanship is Second to none. The tone is all Martin. Has deeper lows than other acoustics, crisp highs and this bad boy is loud! You don't notice it much when sitting down playing it but as soon as you listen to someone else play it you like WOW that is one loud acoustic. If you play a D-28 which there is nothing wrong with that model, then you pick up the HD-28 and play it there is a BIG difference in the volume.
The neck felt funny at first just because I have been playing my 3 Elec's and was not used to an acoustic neck. But it only took about a week and now it feels like I've been playing it for years. I can't play lead on it like my elec's but that will come in time. The neck feels good with the satin finish on the back of the neck.
Deep Lows and crisp highs, very loud. Deep Bass without getting boomy.
Very nice, I wish it had the aged finish like the D-28V or was it the HD-28V but I'm sure this will age gracefully.
It was set up like the Gibson Les Pauls are, by computer. Action was spot on. But of course Jon from MFG looked it over anyway. In the 3 weeks I have had this guitar it has not gone out of tune, I had to make a minor adjustment last night to it, thats all.

Worth It!!
A+++ Never had a problem with this guitar. Extremely well made. Be careful with the finish on the top. They can take years to cure to a hard finish. Just a slight tap against a hard edge can put a ding in it.
Not one problem. Be sure to keep the humidity constant as I have had friends who neglected their guitars and had the tops crack. With constant humidity you will have less problems with action changing.
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar is amazing in every way. And the best thing is that it gets even better with time.
Very easy to play. I love the neck, not too wide for me. Action is great and movement up and down the fretboard is a dream.
Loud, bright, very good lows. I have a Fishman bridge pickup with an Aura Shaper. Sounds fabulous.
The finish was spectacular. No flaws whatsover. The craftsmanship is as it should be. They did this one right. After 4 years with careful caretaking this guitar looks even better than the day I bought it. The finish is again perfectly to give it that vintage look. You will never look at another guitar if you buy this one. I can't recommend it enought.
Mine was a bit high for my tastes and how it lowered professionally. I have it adjusted every 6 months to keep it where I want it.
