Overview

The HD-28E Retro is a modern re-creation of the classic herringbone Dreadnought.

Channelling legends like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, this guitar carries a distinct prestige that can only come from the Retro Series collection. A light, expressive sitka Spruce Top finished with aged toner, appointments that echo the classic stylings of 1930s- and 1940s-era Martins, boasts a forward-shifted scalloped bracing just like the originals - allowing the top to vibrate more freely, providing a warmer bass response.

A modified low oval neck closely mirrors the fast performance and comfort of the Performing Artist series, with a select hardwood that even the most purist of Martin collectors will appreciate. Balancing out the vintage vibe is the lack of a cutaway, but also equipped with Fishman F1 Aura pickup systems for awesome onstage sound and the convenience of a variety of modeled acoustic sounds, or a blend of both, on top of onboard EQ, feedback suppression, and compression.

Combined with the bold voice of an Indian rosewood back and sides, the dreadnought body shape offers distinctive American full range tone that is richly harmonic yet uniquely detailed on the top end for finger picking styles and strummers alike.
