Plenty of power, exceptional tone, punch and sustain.

The Martin D-28 is one of the most iconic, beloved and prized acoustic guitars of all time. Launched on the dreadnought platform in 1931—a style Martin developed in 1917—the D-28 became a crucial creative partner for artists such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Nancy Wilson, Neil Young, Brad Paisley and scores of other singer-songwriters, rockers, folk and Americana musicians, country pickers and blues players. Musician’s Friend is delighted to offer such a legendary instrument for discerning players looking to enhance their chords, riffs and melodies with the resonance of a magnificent history.

Celebrated Acoustic Tones

The rich, warm and silky sound of the Martin D-28 is renowned for its ability to caress vocals—whether you have a Johnny Cash-style baritone or the high-end shimmer of a Nancy Wilson. But the D-28 doesn’t neglect pickers, soloists or other instrumental musicians. It produces complex and articulate midrange frequencies, airy highs and a stout, clear low end that can project single-note lines with a coherent, expressive zing. Furthermore, the D-28 is a dynamic guitar that adeptly translates performance techniques such as aggressive pick attacks and soft finger-pad manuvers to provide musicians with a broad canvas for creating the punch, subtlety and texture to bring their compositions to life.

Excellent Playability

A dreadnought like the D-28 is not a jumbo, but it’s still a big and broad guitar—which, of course, is part of the reason for its deep and bell-like tone and muscular projection. Happily, the D-28 is a comfy guitar to manage for most players, and its satin-finish, slim-taper neck makes it a real delight for players who like to burn from open positions all the way down to the 14th fret. This is a guitar that struts it vintage but plays like the space age. In order words, the D-28 won’t stand in your way. Shred. Slap. Fingerpick. Use it like a beat box, strum or tap. The easy playability of the D-28 can inspire new techniques and unexplored artistic journeys.

Old-School Looks & Modern Features

The Martin D-28 looks much like the historic models you’d see in old photos or find in vintage guitar shops. From the open-gear tuners to the aged toner top and antique-white binding, you could have yourself “photo edited” into a shot of Hank Williams performing onstage, and while your hipster clothing and hair might give you away, the D-28 will look era-appropriate enough to be a credible deep fake. But today’s D-28 isn’t a wayback machine or a nod to nostalgia. It’s forward-shifted X bracing and “High Performance Taper” neck alone make it very much a magnificent guitar for the adventurous musicians of now.
