Martin Acoustic Guitars: D28 Dreadnought

by Guitar Guru

”A Tone That Will Knock You Off Your Feet”

If you have never played a Martin D-28 Dreadnought, you don’t know what you’re missing. Since its introduction to the Martin line in 1931, the D-28 has never been out of production, and is a testament to the sheer quality and timelessness of Martin Guitars.

Martin is known for making some of the best acoustic guitars for sale. The Martin D-28 is one of the Martin Company’s greatest achievements and is to this day known as the standard for all other steel-string guitars on the market. But regardless of its reputation, it is the tone of the D-28 that will knock you off your feet. The D28 has been likened as the “Cinderella at the Ball”, since she looks very plain but she resonates like an absolute princess.

The D28 has rich, honeyed tone that actually feels warm in your fingertips, but produces the kind of volume that is especially good for music in need of a strong, powerful background rhythm and can, if not handled properly, overpower vocals and even other guitars it is playing with.

Made out of solid East Indian rosewood back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top, this guitar not only produces the rich loud sound of a dreadnought, but is beautiful in a simple, understated way that can be attributed to its clean lines and obvious quality craftsmanship. The D28 can cost around $2,399, but it is worth every penny and will give you years of enjoyment. Plus, this guitar holds its value over time if you ever decide to part with it.
