Vintage Construction Meets Playability
The HD-28 Standard features the same scalloped X-bracing pattern that gave 1930s Martins their distinctive tone. This bracing pattern enhances resonance and projection, producing a bold low end with shimmering highs. The 1 3⁄4" nut and 2 5/16" string spacing provide ample room for complex chords and fingerstyle playing. A modified low oval neck and Performing Artist taper make the HD-28 Standard comfortable for any guitarist.
Premium Tonewoods for a Lifetime of Music
The HD-28 Standard pairs a solid Sitka spruce top with solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, a combination responsible for Martin's famous tone. The lightweight spruce top resonates freely while rosewood adds warmth and depth. This guitar will only improve with age as the tonewoods mature. With quality craftsmanship and materials, the HD-28 Standard is an heirloom that will make music for generations.
Versatile Sound for Any Style
The bold yet balanced voice of the HD-28 Standard suits any musical genre. Strummed or fingerpicked, its tone rings through clearly. The low end provides rhythmic support while the sparkling highs enhance leads and melodies. Whether recording multiple tracks or performing solo, this guitar shines in any environment. The HD-28 Standard helps you shape a signature sound to call your own.
Premium Appointments for Visual Appeal
With vintage-inspired appointments, the HD-28 Standard is as striking visually as it is tonally. The herringbone trim, diamond fretboard inlay, and polished East Indian rosewood give this guitar an opulent yet understated elegance. Gold tuners, bridge pins, and a tortoise pickguard complete the upscale look. Built to be heard and seen, the HD-28 Standard makes a statement on any stage.
