Martin D-28 Standard Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Natural

Plenty of power, exceptional tone, punch and sustain.
Sometimes innovation is in the details. This is certainly true with Martin’s reimagined 2017 D-28. After nearly a century at the helm, and as the quintessential workhorse of music legends like Hank Williams, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and so many more, Martin's legendary D-28 has been lovingly and artfully enhanced.

"The post WWII D-28 had a slightly different look than its predecessor and became the centerpiece of the folk and folk rock movements at their pinnacle in the 1950s and 1960s," says Chris Martin, chairman and CEO of Martin Guitar, "We have extracted the finest features from the D-28 of both my grandfather’s and my father’s respective eras."

Perhaps the most iconic of all dreadnought guitars, the Martin D-28 has seen some changes over its long line of production, but by and large remains very true to the original design that drew in players like Paul McCartney, Neil Young, and Elvis Presley to name a few. Its large, but controlled low-end response fills any room while the balanced and detailed highs provide a shimmer that lands the D-28 squarely in benchmark territory. Here, you'll find our mammoth collection of new and used D-28s from 1990 to the present day, with dead-mint examples and even a few serious deals on some with minor play wear.

The 2017 D-28 blends the rich history of the guitar with Martin’s newest and most heralded innovations. The 184-year-old guitar maker has combined vintage appointments, including open-gear tuners, an aged toner top, antique white accents, and a faux tortoise pickguard with a special neck profile to give D-28 enthusiasts a modern feel and comfortable playing experience. Martin has also added forward-shifted bracing to allow greater vibration of the top.
