Martin Standard Series Acoustic Guitars
This instrument blends traditional craftsmanship with contemporary upgrades for fingerstyle players and studio professionals. The smaller 000 body produces a balanced, articulate tone that records beautifully and performs with clarity. Made of solid spruce and rosewood, the 000-28 has the sought-after sound of vintage Martins. Plek'd frets and a modified low-oval neck provide a playing experience as luxurious as its tone.
Vintage Sound, Premium Features
The 000-28 is crafted with premium tonewoods, including a solid spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides. These materials give the guitar a rich, complex voice reminiscent of vintage Martins. Scalloped X-bracing optimizes the spruce top for articulate bass, sparkling treble, and singing sustain. Style 28 appointments like herringbone trim and abalone inlays grace the instrument with timeless elegance.
Playability for Professionals
While the 000-28 has an old-school vibe, its modern neck and frets make playing a dream. The modified low-oval neck has an ergonomic taper for effortless fretting. Its ebony fingerboard hosts 20 Plek'd frets with precision spacing and crowning. This computer-guided fretwork creates an even playing surface for bend-free solos and buzz-free chording across the neck.
The Perfect Studio Companion
With its balanced, detailed tone and ergonomic playability, the 000-28 is ideal for studio use. The smaller 000 body has focused overtones that won't overpower a mix, while solid woods provide enough warmth and depth to stand on their own. Crisp treble and tight bass give the guitar articulation and definition perfect for fingerpicking or light strumming. Easy playability allows for complex parts to be captured quickly and accurately.
A Legacy of Excellence
Martin has been crafting premium guitars since 1833. The 000-28 showcases everything the company has learned in nearly two centuries of innovation. From hand-selected woods to Plek'd frets, each detail of the 000-28 contributes to an instrument legacy professionals rely on.
