Note: This instrument was on display in the Martin booth for Winter NAMM 2020. As a result, the guitar has some cosmetic flaws due to play. It is a new instrument with a full manufacturer's warranty.
The D-28E Modern Deluxe is packed with vintage appointments, custom features, and modern technology. A Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System® (VTS) top, dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction deliver the rich, fully-aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s-style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock give it a look to match its sound. Ultra-modern features like a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal® bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate, boost volume without adding weight, making this a guitar players dream. Aura HD Imaging technology included in new Fishman® Aura VT Blend electronics allows more control over the voice of your guitar than ever before. It offers stunning realism and delivers a new high level of performance for direct recording and live situations.
