In a vast world of guitars, there's rarely one more synonymous with legendary tone than the Martin D-28. One of the earliest models of this body size released, this signature acoustic guitar has been one of Martin's flagships in build, quality, and tone.

Aptly named after the HMS Dreadnought of the British Navy, the dreadnought body style performs as it was titled: without fear. Its reputation is based on heritage, for features like solid woods, traditional hand-fit dovetail neck joints, old-school finishes, and bone nuts & saddles have remained virtually unchanged for nearly a hundred years. This uniquely defined masterpiece of decades past will resonate with you the same it did oh so many years ago, and will continue to do so as you build your lifetime of report. This is a brand new guitar that comes with a hard shell case and limited lifetime warranty. Please reach out if you have any questions about this exceptional instrument.

About the Standard Series:

The Standard Series is the foundation of the entire line of Martin guitars. Historically, every instrument built today has evolved, in some degree, from these classic Martin designs. Standard Series guitars feature a solid top, back, and sides and hand-fit dovetail neck joints.
