A Martin Dreadnought with Scalloped Bracing and Elegant Inlays

The Martin HD28 is an upgraded version of the world-famous D28 acoustic guitar, with distinctive features for players seeking a unique instrument. First and foremost, you'll hear how the scalloped carve-out pattern on the internal bracing gives the HD28 a sound of its own. Beyond that, you'll appreciate a few subtle aesthetic details that give the HD28 a refined visual appeal.

Starting with Unbeatable Tonewoods

The Martin HD-28 is made with a North American Sitka spruce top. This tonewood imbues the instrument with the complex and rich tonal "snap" that have always made Martins some of the greatest acoustic guitars of all time. The top is matched with East Indian rosewood sides and back. These gorgeous woods are accented with a handsome and distinguished herringbone inlay around the HD-28's entire top, set against a white boltaron binding.

Classic Dreadnought Shape

The select hardwood neck on the HD-28 is carved to a 25.4-inch scale length with a 16-inch radius, and is set with 20 stainless steel frets. There is no cutaway, and fret access is clear up through the 14th fret. The fingerboard is made from solid black ebony and set with shiny "style 28" position inlays on six frets.

Scalloped Bracing Design on the Inside

The HD-28's top is reinforced with Standard "X" style scalloped bracing. Scalloping means that the top is able to vibrate more than a top with a traditional X-brace, giving you more overall volume and bass response. Some would describe the sound of a scalloped bracing as offering an overall wider tonal range, rather than a traditional bracing that offers a tighter, narrower tone.

Subtle Aesthetic Touches on the Outside

Along with the herringbone binding, a black-on-white rosette and a zig-zag back inlay strip complete the distinctive aesthetic profile of this Martin dreadnought. The tortoise pickguard perfectly matches the rosewood sides and gloss-finish spruce top. A set of chrome-enclosed tuning machines with large buttons keeps perfect intonation and string lie.

- Solid Sitka Spruce Top
- Black and White Rosette

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (291 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Holy Cow (I am from Vermont) I Finally Own One"
Manufacturer Support: I have not needed to contact Martin. The Wow Factor: Seems an odd question. I buy an instrument to buy an instrument not because it may have some other appeal. This guitar's true aesthetic is its remarkable tonal quality and ease of playability. It's simple and elegant design while important only reinforce the fact that it is a joy to play and listen to. Overall: It is the best instrument I have ever owned. In the Seventies I played a Gallagher. I could not afford it at the time nor was I ready for it. It approached the sound quality of the Martin but did not have the playability. My Martin is a marvel. It is unlikely that I will ever purchase another acoustic steel string. Like my classical instrument, it literally hums against your body as you play and the tonal clarity and balance are superior to every other factory guitar I have played. As a guitarist with a classical background, intonation is very important.I cannot recall ever having a steel-string guitar that did not need further intonation work. Even after the work, the intonation was not up to my ear's standards. It is likely over time, I will find slightly out of tune spots and may have it adjusted. However, the luthier who intonated my Martin had the skill and patience to do a remarkable job. The rumor that new Martins sound like cheap guitars must have been started by a competitor. The HD 28 is remarkable in its sound and beauty.

Overall: love this company. the guitar is perfect. the payment plan is perfect. starvin' artists can't always dish out 3k at once. love love love love love this company! This guitar is super boomy. The playability is unmatched. I spent 8 months playing every single guitar i could get my hands on...and when I played the HD28, i stopped looking. highs are very present and mids are perfect. but the lows are so juicy!
