Few guitars have as storied a legacy as the Martin D-28. Favored by legendary performers like Hank Williams, Johhny Cash, Neil Young, and countless others, the D-28 has become a quintessential sound in the world of acoustic guitar. This D-28 combines the classic designs that made the model famous with several modern performance features, making it a top-of-the-line acoustic that'll make any southpaw proud.
Keeping up with tradition, this D-28 features an East Indian rosewood body capped with a Sitka spruce top, giving it a rich tone with smooth mids and crisp, articulate highs. It also sports several vintage appointments that give it a classic look and feel, including open gear tuners, antique white accents, a faux tortoise pickguard, and an aged toner top.
New to this model is a Modified Low Oval neck profile that enhances comfort and playability immensely. Martin also fitted this D-28 with a forward-shifted X bracing that allows the soundboard to flex more naturally, resulting in a fuller low-end.
Pairing the best qualities of vintage Martins with advanced modern features, this D-28 is perfect for left-handed players seeking a top-notch acoustic guitar with plenty of old-school charm.
