HD-28: Something Fine from Martin

Comments about Martin HD-28 L Acoustic Guitar:

The HD-28 is the finest sounding standard dreadnought on the market and surely Martin's Flagship guitar. After playing a few high-end guitars over the years, the HD is without question THE player's guitar. While the consensus gripe among acoustic guitarists is most Martins produce dull or muted bass notes, I agreed. Not so with this clean and bright Martin. When I purchased my first HD-28 over a decade back-recently lost in a house fire-I spent months looking all over the North East to find the right guitar and was close to going custom. I was hoping to find both good sound balance and a bright and response. WOW! The HD-28 has that and more. It is easy to play with well chosen wood-ebony fretboard-Sitka spruce top, rosewood back and sides. . In short, it is the gold standard of acoustics. What makes the HD-28 sound so clean? Lighter, scalloped bracing. A change from the D-28-all for the better. This results in a guitar with consistent, clean and resonant sound. One thing to note is the light bracing requires a med string set at the max. If you stick with lighter strings (med-light are my favorite), a near perfectly balanced guitar will provide years of enjoyment. Best sound for the bucks. The exterior looks are also pumped up a bit with herringbone edging. The "action" required no change once I broke it in. I am glad to have an HD once again making my world sound sweeter.

Comments about Martin HD-28 L Acoustic Guitar:

I have played many different brands of acoustic guitars, but never a Martin untill now. I purchased an HD28L recently and let me tell you; there is no sound like this guitar. I have never experienced such a true rich deep tone like this guitar offers. I'm spoiled now, so I gave my son and my friend my other guitars, because I won't play them any more! The sound is deep and true! Pick one up and play.... You'll change your mind about Martin guitars for good like I did!
