Since it offers a dark, warm tone with plenty of projection, solid East Indian Rosewood is used for the back and sides. The guitar is capped with a solid piece of select Sitka Spruce for bright, clean highs. Select Mahogany supports a 20-fret fingerboard of solid Striped Ebony. You'll enjoy comfortable, effortless playing thanks to the low profile neck shape. Martin's Dovetail Neck Joint provides optimum strength, great action and free-flowing tone. Additional highlights include Gotoh Chrome tuners, solid striped Ebony bridge, black pickguard, bone nut, and a concentric ring rosette. Comes with deluxe case.  

The use of solid tonewoods means you get a guitar that resonates freely while improving with age, benefits that laminated woods just can't offer.

        Comments about Martin D28 Acoustic Guitar:

        I owned an 80's version of a D-28 and could not adjust to the V-shaped neck profile so I sold it. I never forgot the sound and heard that Martin had changed the neck profile. My new D-28 plays wonderfully and has the perfect guitar sound I have been searching for. Thank-you Martin!

          Comments about Martin D28 Acoustic Guitar:

          The only other guitar that is in the D-28's class is the Gibson J45 Custom. I cannot pick between the two. The Martin however cost $500 less. If you are looking for projection, combined with incredible tone from top to bottom and great playability, then this is the guitar for you. Bluegrass and folk, this guitar is a legend. Got a great used one at Samn Ash's fantastic Huntington, L.I. store. [...] Try one out. They are hard to put down.

              Comments about Martin D28 Acoustic Guitar:

              This and the Gibson J-45 Custom represent the pinnacle of acoustic guitars.The D-28 requires no amplification, because it projects its own full and rich sound, which is quite well balanced. I got a used one recently at Sam Ash's incredible Huntington, L.I. store and it was broken in and easy to play. I put D'addario uncoated 12's on the guitar and the harmonics were incredible. If you yearn to own and play a great acoustic guitar which does not require amplification to be heard, consider the D-28. Not inexpensive, but made here and well worth it.
