Martin D-28 Satin Acoustic Guitar – Aged
6-string Acoustic Guitar with Spruce Top, Rosewood Back and Sides, Mahogany Neck, and Ebony Fingerboard – Aged Satin
The Legendary Dreadnought, Reimagined
Many discerning guitarists instantly name the D-28 as their all-time favorite Martin; it is the standard to which all acoustic guitars are compared. Affectionately dubbed the “tone cannon,” the D-28 deploys classic rich tone and powerful projection that’s perfect for stage and studio. Martin has reimagined the D-28, blending the rich legacy of the guitar with their latest innovations. Vintage appointments include open-gear tuners, an aged toner top, antique white accents, and faux tortoise pickguard. Forward-shifted bracing allows for greater vibration of the top, while a modern neck profile gives you improved comfort and playability. You also get an eye-grabbing satin-finish top, back, sides, and neck.
The dreadnought: a fascinating back story
Launched in 1906, Britain’s HMS Dreadnought was the first all-big-gun battleship and the first to use steam-turbine propulsion. Larger, faster, quieter, and more deadly than any warship that had come before, it ushered in the modern era of naval warfare. In 1916, Martin, which had been handcrafting fine guitars since 1833, christened their new large-bodied acoustic guitars after the groundbreaking naval vessel. Ubiquitous today across musical genres, dreadnoughts deliver the volume and deep bass that makes them ideal for vocal accompaniment, solo work, and many other “unplugged” applications.
A cornerstone of modern music
Martin’s early dreadnoughts set into motion the guitar’s prominent role in modern music and set the standard for tone quality in acoustic guitars. Martin dreadnoughts became known for resonant warm tones, quality craftsmanship, and tasteful styling. For those reasons, Martin guitars became an important part of the music written and performed by the stars of the 1920s and ’30s. The post-WWII D-28 became a cornerstone of the folk and folk rock music of the ’50s and ’60s. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Powerful sound, full bass
The Martin D-28 Satin acoustic guitar offers the deep bass response that’s made Martin dreadnoughts so popular. Yet it also has a high-end presence that sings out even in heavy instrumentation. Martin’s D-28 Satin is both loud and subtle and has a quick response. The powerful voice and full sound of the D-28 have made it a staple in the bluegrass world, but its bold sonic signature has been heard cross-genre.
Quality tonewoods deliver timeless tone
A quality acoustic guitar is all about the wood, and the Martin D-28 Satin serves up a classic tonewood cocktail with no compromises. The top is solid spruce for big projection and spectacular note clarity. Its back and sides are made of solid East Indian rosewood, a classic Martin material. A solid wood neck with solid black ebony fingerboard gives the Martin D-28 Satin amazing playing ease to match its awesome sound!
