Overview

The tone of the Martin D-28 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is what separates it from all other guitars. This left-handed version has a solid Sitka spruce top with glossy finish, special East Indian rosewood for the polished back and sides, and genuine ebony fingerboard and bridge. With its rich, resonant warmth and punchy volume, the Martin D-28 is particularly well-suited to music styles requiring loud, powerful rhythm accompaniment. Martin includes a deluxe hardshell guitar case and limited lifetime warranty with the D-28 Dreadnought.

Martin Dreadnought
The very first dreadnought guitars were designed and crafted by C. F. Martin & Co. in 1916, but marketed in Boston and New York exclusively under the Oliver Ditson brand. Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916. After Ditson went out of business in the early 1930s, Martin introduced the D-1 and D-2 dreadnoughts for standard playing style that would soon become Martin’s iconic D-18 and D-28 models. Over the past 100 years, the Martin dreadnought has helped define what an acoustic guitar can and should be, and subsequently, it has become one of the most popular acoustic guitar designs in the world.

    Comments about Martin Standard Series D-28L Left-Handed Dreadnought Guitar:

    I have owned and played a d28 for 30 years, it has not laid under the bed in a case to be pulled out and looked at once in a while. the fret board needs some work but other than that it has stood the test of time and many hours of playing, anyone should be happy with this insturment, it is built to last and will, don't be afraid to use it because it is a great tool.

    Great Guitar

    By DANA WHEELER

    Comments about Martin Standard Series D-28L Left-Handed Dreadnought Guitar:

    I purchased a new left handed Martin D35 this past February, I couldn,t play a left handed model at Guitar Center so I had to strum a few chords upside down on a right hande D35. I liked how it sounded in the store. I also tried some Taylors but didn't like their sound, too much treble. I purchased a new D35 and when it arived I wasn't as fond of it as I thought I would be. I thought that it lacked volume and it had a bit too much trebble. I found that when strumming hard to get more volume it began to sound tinny. To make a long story short, I decided that I wanted to hear a D28, Guitar Center didn't have a the store I went to. I ended up ordering one and then when it came in I took my D35 and went to Guitar Center and played the new D28. It sounded much better to my ear. I was able to exchange the D35 for the D28. I have had the guitar since the end of February and I am very pleased. Great balanced tone, clear notes and good volume.
