Plenty of power, exceptional tone, punch and sustain.
The Martin D-28 Standard Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is a reimagined classic that blends rich legacy with innovative design. The iconic dreadnought shape produces the robust, resonant tone that made the D-28 a staple for vocal accompaniment and solo work. Forward-shifted bracing and a modern neck profile give discerning players improved comfort and playability. Whether on stage or in studio, the D-28 deploys the coveted Martin sound in spades.
Iconic Tonewoods Sing
A solid Sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood back and sides yield the balanced, complex tone that defined the Martin brand. The spruce top provides articulate note definition and ample projection, while the rosewood body adds warm, rich depth. Together, these prized tonewoods produce a focused low end that sounds full yet tight, never boomy.
Bracing Optimizes Resonance
Pioneered by Martin, the D-28's non-scalloped X-bracing pattern allows the soundboard to vibrate freely, resulting in a loud, resonant voice with a quick response. Forward-shifted bracing also provides players a more balanced midrange and high frequency response. The end result is a dreadnought that sings out clearly even when paired with heavy instrumentation.
Playability Meets Tradition
While vintage appointments like open-gear tuners, an aged toner top, and faux tortoise pickguard pay homage to Martin's rich heritage, a modern neck profile gives players improved comfort and accessibility. The low-profile neck and 1.69" nut width make navigating the ebony fingerboard a breeze. A solid East Indian rosewood headstock and bridge provide tonal continuity throughout.
Road-Ready and Protected
The included deluxe hardshell case provides sturdy, lightweight protection for the D-28, ensuring safe transport and storage. With its powerful, nuanced voice and sleek, player-focused design, the Martin D-28 Standard Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar brings coveted tone and premium craftsmanship to guitarists everywhere.
