When you think of acoustic guitars, the typical model that first comes to mind is the dreadnought, the large-bodied steel-string design known well by players and non-players alike. Martin originated the dreadnought design in the early part of the last century, and still today the Martin D-28 represents the archetypical acoustic guitar, and is the standard by which acoustic guitars are judged. It has been a favorite of players from Hank Williams, Tony Rice and Lester Flatt to Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Jimmy Page, and can heard on countless classic recordings. Today, Martin still crafts each D-28 with the meticulous attention to quality and tone that set the standard for the world to follow. Massive bass response balanced with articulate highs makes this a benchmark acoustic guitar and a must-have for every guitarist.
The tone of the Martin D-28 Acoustic Guitar is what separates it from all other guitars. With its rich, resonant warmth and punchy volume, the Standard D-28 is particularly well-suited to music styles requiring loud, powerful rhythm accompaniment and single-note runs that cut through a mix. It has a solid Sitka spruce top with gloss finish, East Indian rosewood back and sides, and a genuine ebony fingerboard and bridge.
This left-handed version features the Premium Upgrade I, which entails scalloped 5/16 Sitka bracing, grained ivoroid binding, Grover vintage nickel tuners, a beveled and polished faux tortoise pickguard and a genuine mahogany neck. You also get a Martin deluxe hardshell case and limited lifetime warranty.
