Classic Dreadnought from Martin:
The Martin HD-28E dreadnought acoustic guitar boasts the same design that made the D-28 a classic — herringbone top trim, traditional zigzag backstripe, and Martin’s time-tested forward-shifted X-bracing. Used for all styles of music, the HD-28E 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 a spruce top and East Indian rosewood back and sides. The Martin HD-28E is both loud and dynamic and has a quick response with excellent note definition. And with a Fishman Aura VT Enhance system onboard, the HD-28E sounds amazing amplified. Many acoustic players here at City Music have an HD-28E in their collection.

Premium Martin craftsmanship:

The HD-28 is Martin’s premium dreadnought, considered by many guitarists to be the finest-sounding guitar Martin has ever made. With a solid spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, and traditional zigzag purfling on the back, this Martin HD-28E is a beautiful, immaculately designed acoustic guitar. The select hardwood neck boasts a black ebony 20-fret fingerboard with diamond and square taper fingerboard inlays. Beautiful with its vintage-styled belly bridge and classic tortoise pickguard, the HD-28E stays reliably in tune with nickel open-geared tuners — complete with stylish butterbean knobs.The HD-28E’s sound and robust projection make it ideal for live performance as well as recording. In addition, the HD-28E is great for aggressive strumming or subtle fingerpicking — bluegrass, folk, even acoustic rock sound great on the HD-28E.
