Martin

Description

The D-28 Modern Deluxe is a new take on a Martin Vintage. This guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, dovetail neck joint and natural protein glue construction to give it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The look is unlike anything in Martin's production line to date with European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners and a unique 1930s-style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Some ultramodern features include Liquidmetal bridge pins with red dots and a carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume without adding weight. And Martin has given it a new neck shape that is slightly skewed for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. This guitar is anything but standard.

The D-28 Modern Deluxe ships with a hardshell case.
