Crafting a New Classic
A traditional dreadnought body shape provides plenty of depth, warmth and volume to your guitar playing sound – re-creating Martin’s legendary Herringbone-style 28 guitars that are loved the world over.
Solid Sitka Spruce forms the top of the HD-28, Sitka Spruce being a real go-to tonewood when it comes to acoustic guitar tops and extremely popular due to its beautiful resonance, projection and rich tones.
East Indian Rosewood has been used to craft the back and sides, with this wood being renowned for its rich, deep wood grain hue adding an extra layer of visual appeal and complimenting the beautiful tones produced by the Sitka Spruce top.
Forward shifted scalloped X shaped bracing has been utilised, crafted from Sitka Spruce, offering great projection while its forward shifted location further enhances the lower tones of the already bold acoustic voice from this wonderful dreadnought guitar.
Martin’s Most Comfortable Neck
Joining the HD-28 at the 14th fret by way of a dovetail joint is Martin’s most comfortable neck, featuring a modified low oval shape and a high performance neck taper along with a smooth satin finish for a fantastic playing feel.
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 impressive 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 HD-28.
Incredibly Crafted Instrument
The HD28 is well suited for almost any style of player, and lends itself particularly well to rhythmic strummers.
An incredibly versatile instrument for your acoustic arsenal that includes an official Martin hardcase to protect your investment.
Reimagined for 2018, the Martin HD-28, better than ever, is a fantastically built guitar that you will cherish for decades to come.
