Sometimes innovation is in the details, and this is certainly true with this Martin Custom Shop Adirondack Top D-28 Style Custom Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric. After nearly a century at the helm, and as the quintessential workhorse of music legends like Hank Williams, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and so many more, Martin's legendary D-28 has been lovingly and artfully enhanced.
“The post WWII D-28 had a slightly different look than its predecessor and became the centerpiece of the folk and folk rock movements at their pinnacle in the 1950s and 1960s." says Chris Martin, Chairman and CEO of Martin Guitar, "We have extracted the finest features from the D-28 of both my grandfather’s and my father’s respective eras.”
This Custom Shop Adirondack Top D-28 Style Custom Dreadnought blends the rich history of the guitar with Martin’s newest and most heralded innovations, adding a stage-ready Fishman Matrix Infinity VT pickup and strap-pin for performance-level tone right out of the box. The 184 year old guitar maker has combined vintage appointments, including open gear tuners, an aged toner top, antique white accents, and a faux tortoise pickguard with a new Modified Low Oval neck profile to give D-28 enthusiasts a modern feel and comfortable playing experience. Martin has also added forward-shifted bracing to allow greater vibration of the top. The legend has never sounded better!
