D-28

The Basics

The D-28 is the Dreadnought by which all others are judged. Constructed of solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top and mahogany neck, this instrument has been a favorite of artists from Hank Williams Sr. to Jimmy Page. Massive bass response balanced with articulate highs makes this a benchmark acoustic guitar and a must-have for every guitarist. Perfect for the intermediate and advanced player. Available with a sunburst or ambertone shaded top for an additional $250.

Guitar of choice for Martin Ambassadors Ben Howard, Colbie CaillatDel McCoury, James Valentine of Maroon 5, Mumford & Sons, Dirty Guvnahs, and Loudon Wainwright III.
