The Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe is a true masterpiece, raising the bar in Martin Guitar's collection with its extraordinary combination of modern features and timeless craftsmanship. This guitar embodies the perfect harmony of innovation and tradition, making it a standout within Martin's legendary D-28 Series.
Handcrafted with precision, the D-28 Modern Deluxe features a solid Sitka Spruce top, celebrated for its exceptional clarity and projection. Complementing this is the utilization of solid East Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, bestowing the guitar with its signature full, resonant, and well-balanced tonal character.
The D-28 Modern Deluxe embraces modern technology with its Vintage Tone System (VTS) treatment process applied to the Sitka Spruce top. This transformative process imparts the new top with the characteristics of a well-aged, "broken-in" guitar, resulting in a rich and matured tonal palette. The top is reinforced with forward-shifted scalloped Adirondack spruce "X" bracing, enhancing its resonance and responsiveness.
In a nod to the guitar's premium quality, the D-28 Modern Deluxe is appointed with genuine Waverly tuners, long celebrated by vintage guitar enthusiasts for their precise and reliable tuning.
The D-28 Modern Deluxe features a genuine mahogany neck with Vintage Deluxe profile and High Performance taper. It is fitted with an ebony fingerboard fit with nickel/copper frets. The copper alloy in these frets offers a gold hue to their appearance, and fittingly matches the guitar's gold Waverly tuners.
One unique aspect of the D-28 Modern Deluxe is the Liquidmetal bridge pins, developed in collaboration with Liquidmetal Technologies. These bridge pins are crafted from a titanium alloy, rigorously tested by Martin to boost the guitar's volume by approximately 3-5 dB. They are distinguished by a red dot insignia, setting them apart from standard bridge pins.
The guitar also features a Torrefied Adirondack Spruce bridge plate with Carbon Fiber reinforcement on either side. This innovative feature introduces an extra touch of brightness and remarkable stability to the instrument's already rich tonal palette.
For an elegant finishing touch, the D-28 Modern Deluxe features Maple binding with a Herringbone detail, creating a visually striking and luxurious appearance.
The Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe is a remarkable guitar that marries the sophistication of modern design with unparalleled performance. It embodies the pinnacle of acoustic guitar craftsmanship, delivering an instrument that inspires both visually and sonically. It's a testament to Martin's legacy of producing exceptional acoustic guitars.
