Overview

A recreation of the classic herringbone Dreadnought, the Martin HD-28VS is the most popular Vintage Series model from Martin Guitars. This is a Martin Custom Shop Exclusive, Limited Run HD28 vintage style dreadnought.

Vintage Series, Pre-War Style Acoustic Guitar

The Martin HD-28VS has been extremely carefully crafted to provide an authentic, vintage style instrument.

It’s all there in the name of the HD-28VS - the H stands for the ‘herringbone’ trim found around the top of the guitar, the D stands for the dreadnought size of the guitar, the 28 refers to the guitar being the Martin style 28 acoustic while, lastly, the V stands for ‘Vintage Series’.

Martin Quality Craftsmanship

Making up the back and sides of the HD-28VS’s body is Madagascar Rosewood, lending this vintage style guitar a nice overall bright sound across the frequency range and emphasised bass.

Again, so as to take this guitar back to its pre-war roots, the HD-28VS makes use of forward shifted bracing. This traditional placement of the bracing is a key factor in generating the original, vintage sound of the HD-28VS.

For optimal resonance, the bracing is also made from Spruce resulting in a great sounding, securely built acoustic guitar.

The modified “V” shaped neck joins the body through a solid dovetail neck joint, has a highly playable satin finish and features an Ebony fingerboard.

Premium Touches

The nut and saddle are made from bone. Not only is this traditional and a further tribute to guitars of old, the bone nut and saddle add great sustain and help transfer of the string energy into body.

The fretboard has undergone Plek treatment for enhanced playability. 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-28VS.

The headstock is slotted, has a square taper and features a script old style overlay of the Martin logo to really give it that vintage 1930s look.

Vintage Series Martin Acoustic

Channelling country and western legends such as Hank Williams, the HD-28VS carries with it a distinct prestige that can only be found in the Martin Vintage Series collection.

The HD-28VS comes to you with a wooden hard case, brings back the guitar sound of yesteryear and will continue to provide a great playing experience and classic tone for generations to come.
