Martin 2017 D-28 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Natural
The Martin 2017 D-28 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar in Natural finish represents a reimagined version of Martin's iconic D-28 model. With a legacy spanning nearly a century and beloved by music legends like Hank Williams, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan, the D-28 has undergone thoughtful enhancements to further elevate its craftsmanship.
Chris Martin, Chairman and CEO of Martin Guitar, explains the inspiration behind the 2017 D-28: "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. We have extracted the finest features from the D-28 of both my grandfather’s and my father’s respective eras."
The 2017 D-28 seamlessly combines the rich history of this guitar with Martin's latest innovations. Vintage appointments, such as open gear tuners, an aged toner top, antique white accents, and a faux tortoise pickguard, pay homage to the guitar's heritage. Additionally, Martin has introduced a special neck profile for enhanced playability and a modern feel. The forward-shifted bracing allows for greater vibration of the top, contributing to its exceptional sound quality.
