An Innovative New Take on a Classic

Martin's new Modern Deluxe series offers a truly unique playing experience through the combination of sophistication and performance. Packed full of custom features and modern technology, these Modern Deluxe guitars truly have to be experienced first-hand to be fully appreciated.

Premium-Quality Construction

For the Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe you get a guitar that brings together the finest elements of Martin vintage guitar design combined with cutting-edge construction techniques.

Every inch of this guitar, from the bridge pins, to the tonewoods used and beyond, comes together perfectly to introduce a brand new chapter for this illustrious company.

Exquisite Tonewoods

A pairing of Sitka Spruce (top) and East Indian Rosewood (back and sides) is arguably one of the most sought-after tonewood combinations on the market, and has been for the best pary of seventy years.

These two working together help to produce when many people perceive as the perfect acoustic guitar tone.

A Rosewood body will produce a clear, bright sound, with a fairly even response across all frequencies. It also produces a dark and complex resonance, with plenty of rich overtones, and a characteristic zing that other woods just can't reproduce.

Sitting atop the Rosewood body is a piece of solid Sitka Spruce, regarded by many to be the "industry standard" in top woods. Spruce delivers a broad dynamic range, with plenty of articulation but little in the way of harmonic complexity. This results in a consistent sound, regardless of playstyle, making it easily one of the most versatile tonewoods on the market.

Together, these woods produce a loud, rich and clear voice, making the guitar ideal in a number of musical situations.

Modern Upgrades

With the Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe, it won't just be the sound that'll turn your head. Featuring stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, a pearl inlaid 30s style script logo on the headstock, a 2-way Titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal bridge pins, and even a brand-new assymetrical neck profile, it's clear that the Modern Deluxe series means business.

Vintage Appointments

Complimenting those Modern Upgrades we have a range of tried-and-tested appointments that will be familiar to any Martin enthusiast. These include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, VTS Adirondack spruce braces, a dovetail neck joint, and they've even used natural protein glue.

All of this works perfectly together to produce that rich, fully aged tone that Martin are renowned for.

Vintage Tone System

Martin's VTS (Vintage Tone System) allows the luthiers over at Martin to perfectly recreate not only the visuals of a vintage guitar, but also the the tones. Using a unique torrefaction process, Martin are able to prematurely age and stabilise the wood, giving a similar end result to what you'd get with natural ageing.

With this method, Martin have been able to produce guitars that feature the same tone and playability of a vintage Martin, and that's exactly what they've done here with the D-28 Modern Deluxe.
