Martin 012-28 Modern Deluxe 12-Fret Acoustic Guitar (with Case)

While it may be the smallest body size in Martin's range, the 012-28 Modern Deluxe boats a big sound thanks to its spruce top with rosewood back and sides.

What's special about this item?

Sitka spruce top Projects rich, crisp and responsive tone
East Indian rosewood back and sides Rich low end; smooth mids; articulate highs
Mahogany neck Great sustain, strength, and warm tone

The 012-28 Modern Deluxe is a contemporary take on Martin Vintage. This twelve-fret guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel, and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce VINTAGE TONE SYSTEM (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction that giving it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The look is unlike anything in our production line with European flamed maple binding on the body, stylish gold frets, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Some ultra-modern features include Liquidmetal bridge pins with red dots and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume, and an updated neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. This guitar is anything but standard.
