Since 1931, the Martin D-28 has remained at the forefront of iconic acoustic guitar design. Its full-bodied shape is the perfect accompaniment for singer-songwriters, and has graced stage front with some of the most legendary Bluegrass, Rock & Roll and Blues guitarists over the past 7 decades.
The D28 is an all-American, classic dreadnought. A true musical icon
Solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, solid spruce top, and Dreadnought size produce an incredibly loud, full, rich, punchy tone perfect for most musical styles. Without modern electronics available today, the D-28 could hold its own on stage with unparalelled projection and volume. Typically the action is set higher on a D-28 than on a D18, 35, 42 or 45 owing to the instrument's bluegrass roots where the instrument performs with mandolins, banjos and Dobros which are loud. A heavier gauge string and tad higher action makes the guitar louder.
The Beatles were renowned for taking two D28 on tour with them to India, and wrote more than 30 songs to inspire the Woodstock generation of the 60s and 70s. Few guitars have the rich heritage of a Martin D-28 - don't settle for second best when it comes to investing in a quality dreadnought!
