OVERVIEW

Since its debut in 1931, the D-28 has remained the standard by which all large-bodied, steel-string guitars are measured.

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.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

My new (new to me) D-28 is more than I expected from a used guitar. It was in like new condition. I could not be happier. It even smelled new. Something magic happens when you hold and play a guitar that you have dreamed of owning your entire life. My only regret is I wish I could have gotten it a little sooner. At age 77 I don't have a lot of time to enjoy it but I will enjoy it as long as possible. Thank You Musicians Friend for the great deal on this Guitar.

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

I've owned my Martin 28 since 1981. Still hasn't Belled. Neck straight. Action perfect. Plays like a professional guitar is suppose to play. If you are going to play. Enjoy playing. Don't buy no junk or cheap guitar. That's my 2 cent.

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

      First off my guitar is the D-28P, no longer a standard offer, but other than the neck it is the same guitar. I bought it over a year ago. When I first got it I wasn't all that impressed but over the year it has became my favorite out of the 9 guitars I own. The P neck I have really learned to like for flatpicking individual notes, decreases my chance of fingering multiple strings and prevents muffled sounds, yet doesn't hamper strumming chords. The sound has improved dramatically over the past year as it has opened up. The top has beautiful grain and is perfectly book matched, the sides are nicely matched also.

      Now for the complaints (minor cosmetic complaints). The back is not book matched, the wood is pretty but not book matched like the rosewood side. At the 15th and 16th fret there are glue splatters, which I didn't notice till after having the guitar for a month. These complaints are minor but still disappointing for $2400 guitar, and I would consider the D-28 Martins flagship axe, so I would expect better quality control. Still I love the guitar but can't give it a 5.

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

          I've been playing for a long time. I originally bought a Taylor 810, which I still have and am completely/utterly disappointed by. When I got this D-28, I knew immediately that I'd struck gold. The only complaint I have is that the action was set so high that it was barely playable. This, of course, is a factory issue and has nothing to do with Musician's Friend. As of this writing, the guitar is still at my local guitar store where it's been since I received it 3 days ago. I have played this model, just not my own. I was awed by this guitar's performance, when I played it. Play it. You'll want one too. Well balanced, suitable to all styles. Deep powerful bass and sharp crystal clear highs. Great sustain. I really don't have you prototypical guitar player's hands, but this neck on this baby makes it easy.

            This is my first Martin and I couldn't be happier with it. The instrument itself is as beautiful as the sound it produces. Chris Martin says his iconic company produces "a tone wrapped in wood." Yep...and what a tone it is!

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

            Most guitar players know that the Martin D-28 is the gold standard in acoustic dreadnaught guitars. I had been looking for a good deal on one online and found a a gently used one here in Musicians Friend. The price was really good so I took a leap of faith and purchased it. I expected to see some slight cosmetic issues but when it arrived it was spotless. It looked and played beautifully and I could not be more pleased. It is not often in this life that you get something that turned out better than you expected. I love it!!!!

              As advertised. The best acoustic guitar I've ever played....will have lifelong enjoyment from this Martin. Finish, fit and attention to detail superb. Big huge rich sound...begs for you to play a booming G chord. Will never need to buy another acoustic guitar again.

                  It was described as being in near mint condition and it was. It still had the plastic on the pick guard. It arrived on time and was almost in tune.. I've wanted a Martin for a long time but always felt I couldn't afford one. Now that I have it I am very happy. The tone is great and it has great volume. You can play over people talking.
                  This is the first instrument I ever bought without playing it first.
