Unmistakable Martin feel
For 183 years, Martin have been at the forefront of guitar innovation, and premier craftsmanship. Bringing you some of the best acoustic guitars possible. Martin's iconic tone is world renowned, and their playability has become an important characteristic that puts Martin guitars in a league of their own. With their revolutionary Plek process, Martin guitars truly maintain their undeniably majestic tone.
Precision for the ultimate feel and sound. This special Plek process involves a computer controlled device that scans and dresses the guitar under actual playing conditions. It's strung, and tuned to pitch for precise string tension emulation. An incredible process that's been a major breakthrough over the last decade. This is because the machine's meticulous attention to detail identifies exactly what needs to be done to bring you perfect fretwork. It's an innovative machine that brings you flawless results.
Stunning tone from its very core
Powerful sound, versatile nature. This D28 features forward shifted non-scalloped X bracing. Made from sitka spruce to increase versatility and its responsiveness. Dimension wise, this specific type of bracing moves the stiffest part of the top closer to the soundhole, and away from the bridge. This results in the strings activating the top more efficiently. With this, your D28 has boosted bass with a strong treble and mid response. A truly distinctive sound.
Traditional and tone enhancing. The Martin D28 features a real bone nut. This produces incredible resonance and sustain. It also brings a vintage touch to your D28's authentic aesthetic. Additionally, a bone nut is a luxury addition to acoustic instruments, it brings balance to your tone whilst being long-lasting, and superbly durable. You'll also benefit from bone's natural ability to self lubricate. Why will you benefit? Well, it keeps you in tune for longer periods of time, as well as enhancing your tone - truly sublime.
