Originally introduced by Martin way back in the 1930s, when it comes to dreadnought guitars the Martin D-28 is about as iconic as it gets.
Martin D-28, The Iconic Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
A favourite guitar of legendary artists such as Hank Williams Sr. and Jimmy Page, the D-28 has been in production for over 80 years and there’s a reason it has proven so popular over it’s incredibly long life span.
Incredible Martin Guitars Construction
A traditional dreadnought body shape provides the Martin D28 with plenty of depth, warmth and volume.
A Solid Sitka Spruce top has been used for the D-28, Sitka Spruce being an extremely popular tonewood due to its beautiful resonance, projection and rich tones.
For the carefully crafted back and sides, Solid East Indian Rosewood has been used, with this wood being renowned for its rich, deep wood grain hue which adds an extra layer of visual appeal and assisting the beautiful tones produce by the Sitka Spruce top.
X Shaped, scalloped bracing has been utilised, crafted from Sitka Spruce, offering plenty of projection and enhancing the bold acoustic voice of this formidable dreadnought guitar.
Extremely Playable Neck
Joining the D28 at the 14th fret by way of a dovetail joint is an extremely smooth, extremely playable satin finished neck.
Adorning the neck is an Ebony fingerboard which is a joy to play and extremely durable, providing singing sustain and detail that is beneficial to any musical style or performance.
To further enhance the playability of this fantastic acoustic guitar, Martin have given it the much-lauded Plek fret dressing treatment.
The Plek Pro is an incredible, high-tech tool that has been developed for guitar production factories. The result of Plek Pro treatment is a fantastic fret dressing that significantly improves the playability of the Martin D-28.

An incredibly versatile guitar for your acoustic arsenal that includes a moulded hardcase to protect your investment, the Martin D28 is an amazingly built guitar that you will cherish for decades to come.
