6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Quality Sitka Spruce & East Indian Rosewood Construction

The Martin HD-28 features a solid sitka spruce top which produces a versatile sound that is able to accommodate numerous genres and techniques with ease; from lighter fingerpicking styles, to heavier more aggressive strumming patterns. In addition, its stunning sitka spruce top also yields a crisp and articulate tone with a broad dynamic range, and a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm mid-range, and bright singing highs. Furthermore, the solid top is accompanied by East Indian rosewood back and sides, which combined with its sitka spruce top provides players with an incredibly balanced and versatile palette of tones. The rosewood back and sides also produces rich warmth with superb resonance and volume.

Dreadnought Body

The Martin HD-28 features a dreadnought body, which projects an enormous voice yet still maintains overall tonal balance. The dreadnought shape was originally designed for hard pick attack, however through years of superb craftsmanship, Martin have created a dreadnought body with a stunning acoustic voice that is well-balanced and able to accommodate numerous genres and playing styles with ease. The big body is ideal for players more comfortable with the dreadnought size, and those with a longer reach. The sheer volume the HD-28 can project makes it perfect for the singer/songwriter, as vocalists can push their diaphragm to the max without feeling too loud against the guitar's volume, as it will sing as loud as you do.

Select Hardwood Neck & Ebony Fingerboard

With a select hardwood neck and dovetail neck joint, players are certain to adore the Martin's smooth and easy playability. Its select hardwood neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard which adds a bright attack, superb sustain, and plenty of bite to the guitar's overall sound. Furthermore, the fingerboard is sprinkled with mother of pearl style 28 inlays for added elegance.

Plek Pro For Enhanced Playability

Plek Technology uses a computer-controlled machine that carefully measures each fret, along with the fingerboard height under each string. This innovative Plek Technology then automatically dresses each fret, virtually eliminating string buzz and greatly improving the overall playability of the guitar. This pioneering process does the same work in a matter of minutes in comparison to how long it takes a luthier to complete the same job which can take up to several hours, sometimes even days to accomplish.

Real Bone Nut

The HD-28 features a real bone nut, which offers excellent resonance and sustain, along with an authentic appearance. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.

Features

  • Combination of tonewoods and dreadnought body delivers a resonant and powerful response
  • Perfectly-suited to a wide range of genres and playing styles due to dreadnought body
  • Real bone not offers added resonance and sustain
  • Scalloped X bracing for a rich sound with superb projection and volume
  • Sunburst finish offers eye-catching appearance with a vintage-vibe
