Overview

The Martin Custom Shop Special 28 Herringbone takes one of the most historic acoustic guitars ever created to the next level. The wows start with the top, which is made with hand-selected, premium Sitka Bearclaw spruce. Martin utilizes forward-shifted X-bracing for the top, which moves the center of the "X" closer to the soundhole. Developed in the 1930s, this pattern allows the top to more freely vibrate for increased projection and a deeper low end.

This heirloom-quality instrument features Indian rosewood on the back and sides. The satin-finished mahogany neck has a comfortable, modified low-oval-profile with a high performance taper. Mother-of-pearl dots line the black ebony fretboard.

Herringbone binding dresses up the Special 28, which is also outfitted with a black ebony bridge, bone nut, bone saddle, upgraded headstock logo and Grover vintage-style nickel tuners. It comes with a molded hardshell case.

  • Hand-selected, premium Sitka Bearclaw spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides
