Martin HD28

$ 3399.00

When we opened the box on this one, one strum told us it was something special.  We test played it against several high end dreads and this one doesn’t take a back seat to any of them.

Classic herringbone, East Indian rosewood, ebony and spruce in the shape that started it all: the Dreadnought. Paired with our most comfortable neck, vintage appointments, scalloped, forward-shifted bracing, and a lifetime warranty. Powerful bottom end, rich tone, and strums that will fill the room—music history made new.
