Martin HD-28V Acoustic Guitar Natural Finish

$ 3,699.00

The Martin HD-28V dreadnought acoustic guitar boasts the same design that made the D-28 a classic - herringbone top trim, traditional zig-zag backstripe, and Martin's time-tested scalloped X-bracing. Used in all styles of music, the HD-28V offers the deep bass response that's made Martin dreadnoughts so popular. Yet it also has a high-end presence that sings out even in heavy instrumentation. You'll love the gorgeous sound of the classic tonewood combination of sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides. The Martin HD-28V is both loud and subtle, and has a quick response with excellent note definition.

Premium Martin craftsmanship

The HD-28V is Martin's premium dreadnought, considered by many guitarists to be the finest sounding guitar Martin has ever made, period. With a solid Sitka spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, lined with the traditional zig-zag purfling on the back, this Martin HD-28V is a beautiful, immaculately designed acoustic guitar. The select wood neck boasts a black ebony 20-fret fingerboard with diamond and square fingerboard inlays. Beautiful with its vintage-styled belly bridge, and classic tortoise pickguard, the HD-28V stays in tune with Gotoh Nickel open geared tuners - complete with stylish butterbean knobs.

The all-time standard for acoustics Among the great instruments Martin makes, it's safe to say that none has enjoyed more popularity than their line of dreadnoughts, or D-size, guitars. Currently regarded as the "standard" acoustic guitar, dreadnoughts including the D-28 first became popular for backing up vocals, fiddles, and banjos in country and bluegrass music. The D-28's popularity steadily rose as more and more musicians heard it.

Spruce-topped rosewood gives you timeless acoustic sound

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