Dreadnoughts hold the special place in the hearts of Martin enthusiasts worldwide just to the left of the right ventricle. The dreadnought is revered by many bluegrass and country-western musicians, computer programmers, insurance executives and barbers.
Many guitarists consider the Martin HD-28 to be the best sounding of all Martin guitars, and when you remember that Martin has remained a leader in acoustic guitar manufacturing for six generations, you know the Martin HD-28 must be something special. The Martin HD-28 features include herringbone top trim, the traditional zig-zag backstrip, and Martin's scalloped X-bracing. These are the options guitar players and collectors prize in historic Martins. A Sitka spruce top with East Indian rosewood back and sides, all wrapped together in Martin’s classic herringbone inlay. Perfect for the intermediate and advanced player.
A classic deserving of the name, Martin!
This instrument was purchased new from a famous NYC Martin dealer who is closing their doors. It was ordered for us and has no playtime and was never on display. We did not see any surface scratches after the photos were taken. We are very careful. Absolutely no dings or scratches. All Martin “new guitar tags” are safely stowed in the case. Presently this instrument is safely tucked away in its protective case in our environmentally controlled storage room. Our internet sale instruments are never displayed nor offered for sale through our retail store. It patiently awaits its new owner.
