OVERVIEW

Vintage Martin tone meets modern playability.

The Martin HD-28 Standard Dreadnought acoustic guitar epitomizes the sound of an acoustic guitar. Famous for its legendary full-bodied tone and volume, the Martin HD-28 has been the industry standard since 1931.

Martin’s "Golden Era" of dreadnought guitars is prized for their rich tone, color, and expressiveness. One main reason is the bracing pattern. Manufactured from 1931 to 1939, Martin dreadnoughts, such as the D-18 and the D-28, had a forwarded-shifted, scalloped X-bracing pattern. This “Golden Era” bracing pattern gave the Martin dreadnought guitars a very unique and identifiable tone. Highly prized for the clarity on the high end, and a punchy, defined bass, musicians and collectors soon realized that these instruments were unique and highly collectible. No other acoustic guitar had the Martin tone, and as a result everyone wanted one. 

Vintage Tone Meets Modern Playability
Today, you can get that vintage tone of the 1930’s combined with the playability of a modern guitar in the HD-28 Standard. Martin has added the vintage forward-shifted scalloped X- bracing pattern to this Standard version of the HD-28. For improved playability, the neck has been changed to feature a modified low oval neck, with a Performing Artist taper and 1-3/4” nut. The wider string spacing and comfortable neck profile allow a player to move up and down the neck with ease. And unlike the more traditional acoustic guitars of the past, this HD-28 Standard Dreadnought acoustic guitar will have that vintage tone, with a feel that will be similar to that of an electric guitar.

Nice tone, the new neck shape wasn't for me.

      Comments about Martin HD-28 Standard Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I ordered this a few weeks ago, played it for a few days then returned it and exchanged it for the 2017 Standard model. The tone was nice, but not as full as the Standard braced HD-28 to my ear. The aged toner looked ok. The main problems I had were the fit and finish, which weren't up to Martins usual standards. The wood on the neck where it meets the back was not cut cleanly, and one of the new style neck inlays was barely visible, like part of it was missing. The neck shape and 1 3/4" nut were the deal breaker for me. I guess I've been playing 1 11/16 for so long I just couldn't get used to it, same with the low oval neck shape. I'm sure that the details were just the particular guitar that I received and don't reflect on the series. Some people might like the re-imagined changes, I'll stick to the traditional specs that I know and love.
