Considered by many players to be the best-sounding of all Martin guitars.

The Martin HD-28 Standard Dreadnought Acoustic is the re-creation of Martin's legendary herringbone style 28 guitars. It has a Sitka spruce top, solid rosewood back and sides, and mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard. Vintage appointments include herringbone top trim, a traditional zigzag backstrip, and Martin's famous scalloped X-bracing that allows the top to vibrate more freely, yielding a louder, more open tone. Limited lifetime warranty. Includes case.

  • The guitar you cant put down...

    As reviewed by Tonefreak on 7/16/2010

    I played guitars at GC and did my research for about 3 months to get the best feel for each model and make before letting an HD28 pick me out. I played mostly Taylors, Gibsons and Martins. There are qualities I liked in all three. I really liked the low end on the Taylor cedar tops, and the playability and looks of the gibsons. I have always been partial to Gibson after playing a 1980 Heritage Les Paul for 30 years. But I kept coming back to the Martin HD28 to compare everything else to. I just could not find its equal in tone, clarity, sustain, and power. The HD28 has that beautiful warm and rich midrange punch I love so much in acoustic guitars. And the Martin HD28 far surpasses anything else in its price range. This is the guitar I have waited all my life for. Recomendations if you are lucky enough to land an HD28: Keep her hummidified to around 45% as much as you can. I like Elixir medium gage nanoweb pb strings on her the best. Thank You Martin!! Great Guitar!!

    I have 3 Martin guitars but the HD-28 has the most powerful sound I have ever heard in an acoustic guitar. In any Bluegrass jam you will be heard and easily identified. You will never have to be embarrassed showing up with this to a jam. Absolutely awesome Martin dreadnought performance.

  • fingerstyle

    As reviewed by wzchef on 3/22/2007

    For the money, the HD28 is one of the best fingerstyle guitars going, with or without picks. I've played a D41, the OMC, and many other Martins, Guilds and Taylors. This is an outstanding guitar.
