Sometimes innovation is in the details, and this is certainly true with Martin's re-imagined D-28. After nearly a century at the helm, and as the quintessential workhorse of music legends like Hank Williams, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and so many more, Martin's legendary D-28 has been lovingly and artfully enhanced.

"The post-WWII D-28 had a slightly different look than its predecessor and became the centerpiece of the folk and folk rock movements at their pinnacle in the 1950s and 1960s," says Chris Martin, Chairman and CEO of Martin Guitar, "We have extracted the finest features from the D-28 of both my grandfather's and my father's respective eras." The 2017 D-28 blends the rich history of the guitar with Martin's newest and most heralded innovations. The 184 year old guitar maker has combined vintage appointments, including open gear tuners, an aged toner top, antique white accents, and a faux tortoise pickguard with an updated neck profile to give D-28 enthusiasts a modern feel and comfortable playing experience. Martin has also added forward-shifted bracing to allow greater vibration of the top. The legend just got better!

"Another fantastic guitar by Martin"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’m lucky enough to own a D-18 also, and both are the highest quality and tone. I actually prefer the look of mahogany on the back and sides of the D-18, but bought the D-28 because of the rosewood back and sides which gives it a different tone, and is used in their higher end guitars. This is a guitar you can own for the rest of your life, and pass it on to family or friends.
