The Martin SC-28E is another chapter in the legacy of the iconic Style 28 Martin, a Dreadnought acoustic with a history that speaks for itself. The body of this SC-28E boasts a top cut from premium spruce, and a back and sides that showcase the richness and deep color of East Indian rosewood with clarity. A sloped, Modern Belly drop-in saddle made of ebony graces the front of its body, and an intricate bracing system features spruce, treble side scalloped X bracing, with non-scalloped tone bars. The bracing system is visible clearly from the front of the guitar through its soundhole, which adds a unique character to the aesthetic.
A select hardwood neck of this SC-28E features a "Low Profile Velocity" profile, with a familiar-feeling High Performance taper. On the neck, a beautiful, dark ebony fingerboard is topped with Mother of Pearl Style 28 inlays and the neck features white side dots. The neck joint is secured with a Sure Align Linear Dovetail neck joint, in which the dovetail is placed parallel with the strings as opposed to being perpendicular. This construction eliminates the necessity of a neck heel, making the back of the guitar rounded where there would usually be one.
LR Baggs Anthem electronics make this guitar a versatile instrument for plugged-in performances. These electronics capture this 28 Style's natural acoustic tone, recreating it to translate classic Martin sound to live settings with fidelity. The SC-28E also boasts a stunner of a finish: a top featuring a Gloss Aging Toner, and a back and sides showcasing a glossy finish that displays the rosewood's natural beauty, reminding us of why it's so commonly found in Martins. The neck, in contrast to the body, is finished in satin.
This guitar comes with a molded hardshell case. Most new Martin Guitars ship with the original endpin not installed, if you'd like us to install one for you before shipping, please let us know and we'd be happy to.
