The 00-28VS acoustic guitar takes Martin's acclaimed 12-fret body style to a new level of class (and collector's status!). That's because this beautiful Vintage Series acoustic instrument features a beautifully figured East Indian rosewood body. The expertly-inlayed grained-ivoroid body binding shows the care and detail Martin put into re-creating this iconic guitar. Rounding out the tonewoods, a premium Sitka spruce top adds a touch of tonal magic, and a black ebony fingerboard and bridge complete the look. One strum and you'll see that the Martin 00-28VS acoustic guitar is the kind of instrument you'll never want to put down!

Sitka spruce and East Indian rosewood - premium tonewoods for a beautiful sound

You just can't beat the sound of solid Sitka spruce and solid East Indian rosewood. For such an affordable guitar, the Martin 00-28VS spares no expense on its tonewoods. You'll love the crisp sound of the 00-28VS's solid East-Indian rosewood back and sides, and they look fantastic. What's more, the 00-28VS is topped with solid Sitka spruce, adding rich and mellow overtones. When you imagine what a vintage acoustic guitar is supposed to sound like, this is it!

Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance

Arguably one of the most comfortable body styles for acoustic guitars, the Martin 00-28VS has a smaller than average Grand Concert shape. It's the perfect fit when you're looking for a more manageable instrument than larger body styles offer. It also means the 00-28VS is a particularly good fit if you're a fingerstyle player.

Tone that will only get better over time

One reason that vintage Martin guitars sound so rich and captivating is that they've had years to age and mature. Solid wood guitars flex over the years and their tone "settles in" after lots of playing. The 00-28VS sounds amazing right out of the case - but give it five or ten years, and you'll be blown away by the additional harmonic richness that develops over time.
