Since 1931, the Martin D-28 has remained the standard by which all other steel-strings are judged. Solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, solid spruce top, and Dreadnought size produce an incredibly loud, full, rich, punchy tone perfect for most musical styles. Used for years by all the top players, the D-28 is rightfully a living legend in acoustic guitars.
Typically the action is set higher on a D-28 than on a D18, 35, 42 or 45 owing to the instrument's bluegrass roots where the instrument performs with mandolins, banjos and Dobros which are loud. A heavier gauge string and tad higher action makes the guitar louder. Well-played D28's are often referred to as "cannons". The D28 is an American classic.
