Martin HD-28

Martin HD-28

Often regarded as the best sounding Martin guitar.

When it comes to acoustic guitars, Martin is highly regarded and for a reason. Martin brought to us musicians the acoustic guitar as we know it, and the HD-28 is a heck of an acoustic guitar. Most people take the HD-28 for a "nicer looking D-28" and that is wrong. Yes, both guitars do share a lot of the specifications, woods and measurements, but an important difference between the both can be found in the bracing. Both use Forward-Shifted X-Brace technique, the HD-28 has scalloped braces while the D-28 does not. This gives the HD-28 a fuller and louder bottom end, and helps its clarity too. Many players consider the HD-28 to be the best sounding, yet affordable Martin guitar. While we cannot comment on wether that is right or wrong, we do think it is a great sounding acoustic guitar. Add it to the player, take it for a spin and see how you like it.
