The 000-28 is venerable classic from the C.F. Martin Guitar Company and for a host of reasons! First, this Martin 000-28 Acoustic Guitar features East Indian Rosewood back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top with Scalloped Sitka Spruce bracing. The result is a smaller bodied, thin guitar that projects sound with some real gumption! It is supremely comfortable and offers amazingly full sound for a slightly smaller guitar.
From fingerpicking to strumming the Martin 000-28 acoustic guitar is a very versatile guitar. It is impressively loud for a smaller bodied guitar. It has that classic Martin low end without being too boomy. Thanks in part to it's slimmer design, the low's don't detract from the articulation like on some Dread's. The mids are slightly scooped but still present. They sit a little hight, frequency-wise, something we have found consistent across most 000-28's. The highs are bright without being brittle and have a sweet chimey sparkle. It has excellent overtones and harmonics that give this guitar a tonal complexity that is impossible not to appreciate.
The modified low oval neck with the high-performance taper is designed for comfort and easy playability. The frets have been Plek'ed at the factory so the intonation is spot on. It features a 24.9" scale length, which is a little shorter than some Martin's. This slinky feel is appreciate by finger pickers especially. The Ebony fingerboard is jet black. It's cut to a 1 and 3/4" nut width, another great spec for the finger picker.
The Martin 000-28 Acoustic Guitar is perfect for the player looking for a great all around guitar, especially for one that is comfortable but still sounds big enough to keep the ear full. Did you know that most Martin Guitar's come Plek'ed from the factory? That's why they play great, stay in tune, and are buzz free! Did you know we have a Plek Machine?
