Exotic tonewoods and special design make this limited-run acoustic a must-have.

To provide you with a truly unique instrument, this Martin custom D28MC combines the appointments of Martin's popular D28 and D35 and is mixed with a vintage tone. Limited to a run of 50 pieces, the D28MC features a high-grade Italian Alpine Spruce top braced with Martin's Golden Era 5/16" Forward Shifted Scallop X bracing pattern.

The top is decorated with Style 28 maple wood inlays and accentuated with a Delmar tortoise pickguard to keep it protected over time. The body is constructed using precious Madagascar rosewood with a cocobolo center wedge. The guitar has a low profile, solid Honduran mahogany neck with an adjustable two-way truss rod for easy playability.

Other features of the D28MC include a 25.4" scale length with a 1-11/16" nut, and 2-1/8" width at the 12th fret, genuine ebony fingerboard enhanced with a Style 28 pearl inlay pattern. The top, body, and fingerboard are all bound in highly flamed koa. To compliment the unique combination of tonewoods, the 3-piece headplate is artistically specked out to include Madagascar rosewood wings with a cocobolo center wedge and decorated with a raised Gold Foil Martin logo. Other features include an ebony bridge, bone nut and saddle, chrome tuning machines, and a 640 molded case.

  • The best of both models - plus!

    As reviewed by William Miller on 1/22/2014

    I took delivery of a CST D28 MC after seeing it in the GC Platinum section. First, it's a beautiful mix of dark Madagascar Rosewood and Cocobolo. The Koa binding made it elegant. The fit and finish are great. The playability is what one expects from the Martin Custom Shop -- perfect. Now for the tone?very crisp highs (no doubt due to the Alpine Spruce top), strong mids, and booming lows. A balance of all of the good stuff. It's not the right choice if you want to meld into the background, but for advanced rhythm, solo, or lead play it's the one you want.

  • New Guitar what i wanted to know

    As reviewed by Jeanne on 2/25/2015

    It was worth the wait. Opened the box - no problems with the guitar's finish or fit. The top was quarter-sawn and had no flaws; the setup was neck relief .004 at the 12th string .056 and .093 respective. No buzzing or strangled strings. Has a bright voice, but not overly bright and the bass is good without being overpowering. I would say it is a balanced tone, but would not call it warm. The tone is exactly what I was looking for and it plays very well. holds tone well and would be great for recording. Don't think I could have gotten more bang for the buck. Only anomaly I noticed was the disparity between Martin calling it a D35 and the add calling it a D28. I would call it a D35. The neck has no diamond and the neck was perfect quarter sawn. No weak neck.

  • Awaiting arrival

    As reviewed by JOHN on 7/14/2014

    According to GC sales guy, GC only gets 3 of this model for all their US stores! Sales pitch? Don't know but the order screen did show only one left available for delivery Sept 26 2014. I bought it and seems a good value. Haven't played a Madagascar body but have played Brazzy rosewood so will be very interested. Also played a full cocobolo back sides with Alpine Spruce top that was REALLY bright and rings almost too much so. Expecting this MC 28 to have more of the bottom end of Brazzy rosewood plus some midrange articulation from the cocobolo centerpiece. Fingers crossed and on edge of chair. The overly plain (to me ) maple accents and no upgraded rosette are a bit disappointing but probably helped keep the price down. Hoping Headstock in three piece like D35 back doesn't appear garish.
