Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe

All of our Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.

The new for 2019 D-28 Modern Deluxe is the latest, greatest incarnation of the most famous acoustic guitar in the world. This powerful dreadnought-sized Martin is a Deluxe version of the Standard Series D-28 with upgrades once found only on classic D-28s in the Vintage Series, Marquis/GE Series, and Authentic Series, while also getting ultra-modern features previously reserved for luxurious Limited Editions. There is nothing “standard” about this baby!

All solid tonewoods include solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, a Genuine Mahogany neck with a traditional hand-fitted dovetail neck joint, solid ebony fretboard and bridge. European flamed maple bindings enhance the timeless Style 28 appointments like herringbone trim, Zig-zag back strip, and an early 1930s Martin script logo rarely seen before, and now inlaid in colorful abalone just like the Diamonds & Squares pattern fret markers on the ebony fretboard. The exclusive Modern Deluxe neck combines Martin’s modern High Performance fretboard taper with the Vintage Deluxe neck profile, which has a slight skewing to its shape that’s taken from a priceless pre-war Martin considered one of the most comfortable necks ever made.

Martin’s Vintage Tone System® ages the Sitka spruce top and scalloped, forward-shifted Adirondack spruce braces that also get VTS treatment, for a fully seasoned Martin tone that’s made all the more resonant by the use of natural protein glue for the all-important top braces, an ultralight carbon fiber bridge plate, strong but light titanium neck rod, and Liquidmetal® bridge pins for optimum volume and sustain. This Modern Deluxe model is one magnificent D-28, even more vintage-like yet more Modern and certainly more Deluxe than the Standard HD-28, and all for a fraction of the price of the D-28 Authentic 1937.
