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

from Parker, CO

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.

NEW MARTIN D12-28

By Fox-Z_ixN

from Shawnee, OK

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

I just received my new Martin D12-28 and it's everything I expected and even more. Pictures don't do it justice. It has a beautiful, straight and tight grained Sitka spruce top with no flaws in it. The rosewood back and sides are equally beautiful. The black pickguard compliments the beautiful ebony fingerboard and bridge. The expected Martin quality, fit and finish are all there. All I had to do was fine tune the strings and start playing. The guitar was perfectly adjusted to suit my playing preference and the sound was clean and right on. The harmonics rang out and sustained like a bell. For a 12-string it plays very easily. This is a guitar I've dreamed of for years and I know I'll always treasure it as long as I live. I can't wait to play it again and intend to enjoy it as much as I can. You can't go wrong with a Martin and you can't go wrong with Musicians Friend.
