Sale price$499.99


Our Take:

Every major brand in the music industry has that one product that made them who they are today. Fender has the Telecaster. Gibson has the Les Paul. Martin has the D-28. There's something that feels and sounds intrinsically correct with this instrument, and Martin has retained that aspect of their legendary guitar while adding more contemporary innovations, such as a new neck profile and forward-shifted bracing to add modern flavor to an age-old playing feel and tone. If you've never played a D-28 before, trust us: it's a game-changer. 

Martin's Take

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 all new 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 a new 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!
