    Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

    I have owned a Martin D 28 6 string for about 10 years now, and the quality is second to none, and this martin D 12 28 is without a doubt perfect, I opened the box with great expectations and I was not disappointed, in fact I was shocked at the shear beauty, quality and play ability ( I couldn't resist playing stairway to heaven) if you can afford to buy this guitar do it.

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      This is my second Martin (my first is a 1967 00-18) so I know and appreciate Martin's quality and sound. This D 12-28 confirmed Martin's consistency in both areas. It has a full rich sound and it fingers easily for a 12 string. I definitely recommend it to anyone considering a 12 string acoustic.

      A great Guitar I Have Loved

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      Overall is a great 12-string GUITAR
      I bought a D12-28 12-String Martin in 1983. I have loved that guitar forever. It was really great but gave it up for a gift for my new daughter-in-law.
      Tone was great. Feel was great. Action was great.
      To have such quality is a bargain at any price.

      Just as expected...

      By BryanS

      from Planet Earth

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      Purchased this guitar from MF and received it a week ago. Fantastic guitar! Bought an HD-28 from MF about 10 years ago that sounds as good and looks even better than the day I bought it. I look forward to watching this D12-28 'mature' over the next few years. Action is nice and low, lower than my HD-28. The neck and fingerboard are very comfortable. The sounds that resonate from this instrument are just as expected from a high-end Martin. I had no reservations about purchasing this guitar without having played it. If you're in the market for a 12-string, and are a fan of Martin guitars, this one surely won't disappoint.

      Best 12-string out there

      By gsjohn6

      Ask me a question

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      I received my D12-28 for my birthday 2 years ago and I could not be happier with it. It has the most amazingly full sound of any 12-string I've ever played. This thing just sings. I bought my first Martin - a D-25K - back in 1982 and have been a Martin guy ever since. I do a lot of finger style playing and the D12-28 has the perfect spacing between the string pairs to allow very accurate picking. If you're looking for a quality 12-string, you need to try out this guitar.

      I Love this Guitar

      By rangerdoug

      from Austin, TX

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      Purchased my D12-28 about 6 months ago. I have no regrets. I like the shorted scale length it does make fingering a little easier. I did find the bass to be a little muddy due to the strings. I replaced them with a Martin FX 12 string set, so the bass response is much better.

      Yeeee-haaa, finally a 12-string I really like

      By rangerdoug

      from Austin, TX

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      I received my Martin 12-28 yesterday, I have owned several other brands, including a couple that are famous for their 12 string guitars, but none of them seemed to have the right tone for me. I am a Martin man to the core. I was so excited about it I was waiting at the door when the UPS man arrived. I took it out of the box tuned in up and began playing, all I can say is fantastic. I was exactly as I expected. I did notice however that the plain steel strings appeared to have some rust on them, but that did not effect the tone, it was no big deal, because I always change the strings or have them changed on any guitar I first acquire, whether used or new.

      Great 12 String

      By Melinda Rogers

      from Arizona

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      The Martin D12-28 12 String is a great choice. I have owned other brands of 12 strings, and the Martin is by far the best in this price range. The tone quality is fantastic and it has nice neck action. This is a Beautiful Guitar !!!!!

      Big Guitar - Big Sound

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      It's a big guitar which can make a 'lot' of noise so even without amplification it holds its own in the band. Even without a professional setup the action on mine is just right allowing barre chords to be played right up the neck.I don't own any other Martin so can't draw a direct comparison to 'other' martins but the build quality compared to other brands is excellent.It has a distinctive sound which I find hard to describe.

      My Baby!

      By Doctor J

      from Colorado Mountains

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D12-28 12-String Dreadnought Guitar:

      My wife bought this for me one Christmas over 10 years ago. It is absolutely the sweetest guitar I'v ever owned, easy on the fingers, fast action, and sounds beautiful in standard tuning and even more lovely G-tuned. Use a glass slide and you're in Heaven! She's a family member who never lets me down.
