Martin 0012-28 Modern Deluxe
All of our Martin 00 12 28 Modern Deluxe guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, and come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty. The Martin 0012-28 Modern Deluxe is also available left-handed.
Today's 0012-28 Modern Deluxe was inspired by the 12-fret herringbone 00-28 that once was the most popular flattop acoustic guitar, from the time of the Civil War and the advent of Americana music to the birth of modern Country Music and Jazz during the 1920s. Now, it has been reborn and enhanced with ultra-modern engineering that raises things to a whole new level.
The exquisite tonal balance from this 12-fret 00's East Indian sound chamber is full, rich, and round, made all the more powerful and beautiful by the VTS Sitka spruce top and 1/4" Golden Era scalloped braces made with VTS Adirondack spruce, set in place by natural protein glue.
The composite carbon fiber bridge plate and Liquidmetal bridge pins, low and comfy Vintage Deluxe profile on the short-scale Genuine mahogany neck, ebony fretboard with its vintage Martin thinness, all contribute to more tone-producing energy being converted into more detailed, powerful tone.
The classic pyramid bridge and slotted headstock also contribute to tone production. The narrow bridge helps create bass response while the steep break angle of the strings where they cross the bone nut increase string tension for even more power. The special High Performance taper (1-13/16" at nut and 2-1/4" at the 12th fret) is designed with fingerstyle playing mind, while never being too much a handful for barre chords and flatpicking. A classic reborn and refined for modern times, the 0012-28 is one amazing Grand Concert Martin.
