Not many things about the Martin D-28 need to be changed. In fact, the timeless combo of Sitka Spruce and Indian rosewood has been heard so many times, that it is guaranteed to be a recipe for success.


Shifting the Sitka Spruce Braces forward allows for the top to project and flex more. Giving the guitar more resonance and dynamic capabilities. A change in tone is noticeable, be it good or bad depending on your ear, but we love it! The Sitka Spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides are time tested favorites, so much so that that recipe is in just about every collection.

A neck made of select hardwood is topped with a black Ebony Fingerboard. Providing striking contrast to the light aging toner on the otherwise blonde Spruce top. A dove tail neck joint used to adhere the body and neck is a time tested and preferred method of build for most. It results in what many consider to be a superior sounding and playing guitar, ultimately. The neck features the modified low oval shape, high performance neck taper, a nut width of 1.75" and scale length of 25.4". It's a very classic feeling Martin but with the added benefits of having gone through the Plek Process during manufacturing

Sometimes innovation is in the details and this is certainly true with Martin’s re-imagined D-28. After nearly a century at the helm, and as the quintessential workhorse of music legends like Hank Williams, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and so many more, Martin's legendary D-28 has been lovingly and artfully enhanced. “The post WWII D-28 had a slightly different look than its predecessor and became the centerpiece of the folk and folk rock movements at their pinnacle in the 1950s and 1960s." says Chris Martin, Chairman and CEO of Martin Guitar, "We have extracted the finest features from the D-28 of both my grandfather’s and my father’s respective eras.” The all new D-28 blends the rich history of the guitar with Martin’s newest and most heralded innovations. The 184 year old guitar maker has combined vintage appointments, including open gear tuners, an aged toner top, antique white accents, and a faux tortoise pickguard with a new neck profile to give D-28 enthusiasts a modern feel and comfortable playing experience. Martin has also added forward-shifted bracing to allow greater vibration of the top. The legend just got better!
