OVERVIEW

A standard by which all large-bodied, steel-string guitars are measured—now with Fishman electronics.

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. This Standard Series Custom D-28E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar adds the versatility of Martin's Gold+Plus electronics for great plug-and-play accuracy in live and recording envrionments.


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 Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916.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.

Martin Thinline Gold+Plus Acoustic Pickup System
The Martin Thinline Gold+Plus Acoustic Pickup System's patented design solves the age-old problems of string balance, string spacing and wire-hole placement. That means you can use this pickup on virtually any acoustic guitar. 

Martin crafts the Thinline pickup using a highly sensitive copolymer specifically formulated for it. The short distance from the undersaddle pickup to its internally mounted preamp maintains signal integrity. The preamp is designed for guitars that are amplified at high volumes, especially full-size guitars. 

The Martin Gold+Plus Pickup is voiced to control boominess and to provide extra brightness. Recommended for musicians in situations where the guitar needs to stand out and sound natural without feedback. The Martin Thinline Gold+Plus Pickup's preamp circuitry gives a battery life of up to 12,000 hours.

Comments about Martin Standard Series Custom D-28E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have tried out various Martins and a couple of Taylors, including the Custom MMV, Rosewood DCPA4 & GPCPA4, GPCRSGT, and 310. They all fall short of this incredible machine. The Custom MMV is probably the closest, but if you can afford it, then don't hesitate and just buy this thing. If the rich history and ridiculous repertoire of famous musicians doesn't convince you, then go and play one at your store; you will love it immediately. I liked it better than the HD28, honestly; plus, the value is held very well over lifetimes/generations. This is a forever guitar...
