    Comments about Martin Standard Series 000-28 Acoustic Guitar:

    First of all, I'm a Martin fan thru-and-thru. I own a few other Martin guitars (HD-28 and D-16) but wanted a nice small body guitar that I can eventually gift to my daughter. This OOO-28 is nicely finished, plays wonderfully and really captures the Martin-tone I've come to love. The best way to describe the tone is delicate...its balanced, articulate and dynamic; but when I really lean on it strumming, it thins out a bit. I know its not fair to compare to compare it to my dreadnoughts, but if you're needing volume I'd look elsewhere.

    Fingerstyle playing is a dream with its shorter scale and body size is very comfortable while sitting. It really has a sweet tone and plays great all over the neck and very pleased with it overall.

        Comments about Martin Standard Series 000-28 Acoustic Guitar:

        I have only one negative thing to say about this guitar. I lose time. I can't walk past her without picking her up and then 2 hours have passed suddenly by.

        I tried both the standard and EC versions and bought the standard as it just sounded more to my liking i.e. more raw - had the cash for either. I tend to use mine for blues/folk type music (finger/flat picking).

        I've had her for a year now and my love just grows. The one con that i see others complain about is loudness. If you want a loud guitar go buy a dreadnought, not that the 00028 is all that quiet. A fender strat is not loud enough until you amp that baby up! (poor comparison but i'm sure you get my point).Do the same here if you wish to leave the house with her and perform i.e. if you are able to stop playing her and manage to get out the door.

        I wish you all the enjoyment that I get from this beautiful instrument.

        Comments about Martin Standard Series 000-28 Acoustic Guitar:

        I always wanted a Martin 000-28 Standard guitar and I'm very pleased with my purchase. This will likely be the last acoustic guitar I will buy. No need for another. The Martin quality that musicians expect and appreciate.

        The instrument is overall an excellent one. The only setback is that it isn't extremely loud, making it difficult for a large crowd jam. But plugged in, it's the best.

            First off Musicians Friend is a great company I've been using them for fifteen years now and have never had a problem. I bought this Martin used with great results this is the 2nd used guitar from MF and glad I did, the 000-28 was in excellent condition and as described. Sounds and plays beautifully, I have a Gibson Hummingbird that I love, I only mention this because these are two different animals entirely. While the Gibson has it's own sound all together and is something I will never give up I feel the same for the Martin because it is great for fiddling around as well as flat picking while much easier to play. I highly recommend the Martin for jamming and doodling great guitar.

            Try one before considering a Dread!

            By Pro From Dover

            from NJ

            Comments about Martin Standard Series 000-28 Acoustic Guitar:

            Up until I ?discovered? hand-crafted custom and smaller-bodied guitars over the last 2 years, I?d only owned and played Dreads, including 5 Martins. With respect to Martins, I find the combination of the 000 body size / and low profile neck on this 000-28 & the 00 size / and modified low oval neck on my 00-16DBR to be the two Martins that are the most comfortable for me to play (though I will never part with my ?74 D12-18 dread 12-string). Many like the mod V neck of the EC model. My 00-18V had that neck style but I found it difficult to play. The 000-28 isn?t as ?big? sounding as my HD-28 was, but unless you need the volume to cut through a Blue Grass mix, the sound and tone are ample, rich and silky. (You can always pop in a soundhole PU and play thru an amp in that case!). While finger-style playing seems better suited for this model, it?s no slouch in the flat-picking or rhythm/strumming department either. You owe it to yourself to try one, especially before you consider a Dread.

            A Solid Martin

            By GingerKid81

            from Iowa

            Comments about Martin Standard Series 000-28 Acoustic Guitar:

            I've had this particular model [000-28] for about 10 years. It's smaller/thinner body is comfortable and spits out a good, solid tone. It quickly moved into the position of being my main acoustic, and I haven't regretted it since.If you prefer a 'lighter' sound, but still want that hint of Martin tone, this is a great buy if you can afford the price tag!

            Nice guitar for the money.

            By FrankK

            from Midwest.

            Comments about Martin Standard Series 000-28 Acoustic Guitar:

            If you are looking for the value point in the Martin line of small body guitars, this is it. Versus what you might get in a Taylor at this price point, the appointments are pretty basic. However, the woods, materials, and construction are 100 percent Martin quality -- no compromises in this area.Many compare this quitar to the 000-28ec (which I own). This is somewhat valid, but if the 000 is a Toyota, the 000-28ec is a Lexus. Same tone, but I find the 000-28ec to be more responsive. In addition to responsiveness and appointments, there are a couple other differences between the models: neck shape (low oval vs. mod v) and nut/bridge width. I don't think these differences affect the sound, but they do change the playability.All in all, I consider this guitar to be the least expensive "real" Martin small body guitar. I think most any player would be pleased with it.

            I couldn't imagine spending the last 54 years of my life without music, and, especially since l969, when I was blessed with my own 00028 Martin. It has overcome time, hardship, wive(s), random occurrences for overall joy, happiness, and self-expression. It is my BEST FRIEND!
