Overview

The Martin 2018 HD-28 epitomizes the sound of an acoustic guitar. Famous for its legendary full-bodied tone and volume, the Martin HD-28 has been an industry standard since 1931. Martin’s “Golden Era” of dreadnought guitars is prized for their rich tone, color, and expressiveness. One main reason is the bracing pattern. Manufactured from 1931 to 1939, Martin dreadnoughts, such as the D-18 and the D-28, had a forwarded-shifted, scalloped X-bracing pattern. This “Golden Era” bracing pattern gave the Martin dreadnought guitars a very unique and identifiable tone. Highly prized for the clarity on the high end, and a punchy, defined bass, musicians and collectors soon realized that these instruments were unique and highly collectible. No other acoustic guitar had the Martin tone, and as a result everyone wanted one.

Vintage Tone Meets Modern Playability
Today, you can get that vintage tone of the 1930s combined with the playability of a modern guitar in this 2018 HD-28E-Z Standard Dreadnought. Martin has given it the vintage forward-shifted scalloped X- bracing pattern, and for improved playability, the neck has been changed to feature a modified low oval neck with a Performing Artist taper and 1-3/4” nut. The wider string spacing and comfortable neck profile allow a player to move up and down the neck with ease. And, unlike the more traditional acoustic guitars of the past, the 2018 HD-28 will have that vintage tone, with a feel that will be similar to that of an electric guitar.

Other Appointments
Along with an amazing sound and feel, the 2018 HD-28-Z features a solid Sitka spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, ebony bridge and fingerboard, dovetail neck joint, Nitrocellulose lacquer, classic herringbone inlay, diamonds and square fingerboard inlay pattern, antique white binding and aging toner.

Electronics
The HD-28-Z comes equipped with a factory-installed L.R. Baggs Anthem for a true tonal reproduction of the sound, exactly as you hear it played acoustically. 


Includes molded hardshell case.
