The Martin 000-28 Acoustic Guitar in Natural and its small body, surprise many with its amazing tone. It's long been the go-to for players finding a Dreadnaught either too cumbersome or too boomy. The 000 size is easy on the right shoulder, due to its slimmer body, and on the left-hand thanks to a scale length of 24.9".
The Martin 000-28 features East Indian Rosewood back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top for classic tones. Deep, rich bass response with excellent sustain teams with Great harmonics and overtones that fingerstyle players will love. The low profile neck is very comfortable to play and is just the right size for most hand sizes. The frets have been Plek'ed at the factory so the intonation and playability is excellent.
The 000 body size is thinner than a Dreadnaught and cuts down on the boomy nature of the larger, deeper body size. The sound comes out of these guitars faster, giving it an excellent attack for a Rosewood instrument. The 000 body is also very comfortable to sit with, deemed by many as the perfect couch guitar. Smaller models like the 00 and 0 become somewhat boxy due to their shrunken stature but the 000 (and OM) stays balanced and articulate, never boomy, muddy, or boxy.
Martin performs a factory Plek Fret Dressing during construction and the results are a buzz-free playing experience. This revolutionary machine has been making guitars far more playable than they have ever been and that's why leading manufacturers like Martin and Gibson have been using them for years! And guess what? We have a Plek Machine of our own, on-premises! Watch a video about the Plek Machine process here or check out an in-depth Blog Post with before and after pics here!
