Martin D-28E Modern Deluxe

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

The D-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 players 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 D-28E Modern Deluxe comes with a ply hardshell case and is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 light gauge strings.

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 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.
