Martin 000-28E Modern Deluxe
All of our Martin 00028E Modern Deluxe guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
The 000-28E Modern Deluxe is packed with vintage appointments, custom features, and modern technology. A spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction deliver the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s-style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock give it a look to match its sound. Ultra-modern features like a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate, boost volume without adding weight, making this a guitar player's dream. Aura HD Imaging technology included in new Fishman Aura VT Blend electronics allows more control over the voice of your guitar than ever before. It offers stunning realism and delivers a new high level of performance for direct recording and live situations. The 000-28E Modern Deluxe comes with a hardshell case and is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 light gauge strings.
Advanced tone-enhancing technology meets vintage vibe, as the ultra-modern two-way adjustable titanium support rod reduces weight while allowing more string energy to pass through the Genuine Mahogany neck to the body, like Martin necks of old. The dark and lovely Indian rosewood body is topped with excellent spruce that has been treated with Martin’s Vintage Tone System®, the proprietary process of torrefaction that ages the top until a new guitar sounds like it was played for decades. And the scalloped braces are made of VTS Adirondack spruce previously reserved for the Authentic Series guitars, while each brace is carved like the guitars of the Golden Era Series.
This truly Deluxe model gets European flamed maple binding and heel cap, a bone nut, a vintage Style 28 Zig-zag back strip, abalone fret markers in the long Diamonds & Squares pattern, gorgeous gold frets that are sturdier than normal frets, along with matching gold vintage tuners, and a rarely seen 1930s Martin script logo on the headstock, inlaid in stunning abalone shell. A traditional hand-fitted dovetail neck joint and natural protein glue construction for their all-important top braces ensure optimum energy exchange between neck, top, back and sides.
The neck is another amalgamation of the ultra-modern advances and classically-vintage Martin magnificence, as it combines the sleek High Performance Taper of the fretboard with the extremely comfortable Vintage Deluxe neck profile, closely inspired by an early 1930s Martin neck considered to be the most comfortable vintage neck of them all.
While this 000-28E MD has woods and features comparable to the Standard Series 000-28 and the 000-28 Eric Clapton models, it also has the feel and tone of a vintage Martin 000-28 beyond either of those worthy Martin guitars, for a price greatly below the cost of an Authentic Series guitar. When it comes down to it, there really is no comparison. This 000-28 is both more Modern and most definitely more Deluxe. View the entire Modern Deluxe Series here. If you don't have a need for a pickup, you might be interested in the non-electric Martin 00028 Modern Deluxe.
