Standard series solid sitka spruce top acoustic guitar with solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, and striped ebony fingerboard - the quintissential Martin Acoustic! Includes a Martin vinyl laminated hardshell guitar case and a 12 pack of Promo Guitar Strings. The tone of the Martin D-28 Acoustic Guitar is what separates it from all other guitars. It has a solid Sitka spruce top with glossy finish, special East Indian rosewood for the polished back and sides, and genuine ebony fingerboard and bridge. With its rich, resonant warmth and punchy volume, the D-28 is particularly well-suited to music styles requiring loud, powerful rhythm accompaniment. Includes Martin deluxe hardshell case and limited lifetime warranty. Martin Dreadnought The very first dreadnought guitars were designed and crafted by C. F. Martin & Co. in 1916, but marketed in Boston and New York exclusively under the Oliver Ditson brand. Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916. After Ditson went out of business in the early 1930s, Martin introduced the D-1 and D-2 dreadnoughts for standard playing style that would soon become Martin’s iconic D-18 and D-28 models. Over the past 100 years, the Martin dreadnought has helped define what an acoustic guitar can and should be, and subsequently, it has become one of the most popular acoustic guitar designs in the world.

Being of the age that my Martin D-28 is it does not have a truss rod. Never-the-less, it rings like Christmas bells in the philharmonic. I do feel the need to have the neck reset. The newer ones, I believe, have the rod so my problem will not be yours. (The action on mine is a little more difficult after all this time and travel)
The D-28 is a wonder. It is so very true to all types of music. BlueGrass, rock, jazz. CF Martin had his stuff together on this one as it has lasted for decades + and been lauded by all the stars of the aforementioned types of various groups that have needed and used an acoustic guitar.
Construction is superb. Woods are superb. Mine is Brazilian Rosewood and German spruce top. Ebony finger board and saddle. I will have it buried with me to keep it close.
If you are looking for a sweet and life long friend, this is it as to instruments. Not as fancy as some Martins but the sound more than makes up for its basic look. Strum an E or A chord on this or finger pick or knock yourself out and watch your audience perk up. The sound of the Martin D-28 is individual to other guitars. I can pick a D-28 out of a sound track most every time.
Just a sweet and dependable friend. Buy a really good case to protect it.
There is one notable aesthetic drawback.The pure white boltaron binding really contrasts with the wood and just looks like cheap plastic. I don't know why Martin uses this stuff. Anyway, it can be dealt with. Shoe polish will permanently stain it. I used Kiwi Brown Shoe Polish, and it resulted in a nice mottled reddish brown. You would think it would wipe off, but it does not. It appears to penetrate the boltaron. The tan shoe polish does not work. Note that for some reason the heel cap takes up too much stain and looks quite reddish with this method.
Nothing else sounds like a Martin. I have other guitars and decided that I wanted one that "sounds like a Martin". I bought my D28 new in 2009 after trying many, many $1,000+ priced guitars in local music stores. The fit and finish is fantastic. I have small hands and the neck is a little bit thinner than on the older D28s and the action is great. The sound is awesome, loud, and the tone is rich and full. I was after the classic Martin Dreadnought sound and the D28 is it. As this guitar opens up over the next several years the sound can only get better.
UPDATE: After owning this guitar for eight years the sound has only improved. Even though Martin D28 guitars are expensive, I am really glad I bought one. I should have done it 20 years ago.
