Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this D-28 Modern Deluxe from our friends over at Martin.

This is the perfect acoustic that straddles the traditional and vintage with the modern and innovative. By that we mean to say that this really feels like a culmination of Martin's history with some influences and signs for where they're going in the future. The best example is probably in the VTS treatment of the top. It's a new technology called the Vintage Tone System which, as the name implies, helps the guitar sound and feel more vintage. So whereas most acoustic guitars require lots of playing time on them for the sound to truly open up and sound its best, the idea here is that as soon as you pull this out of the case for the first time the guitar is already well on its way towards that end goal. And you know what? This is more than just gimmicks and marketing jargon. The VTS is real! The "Modern Deluxe" moniker is almost a misnomer because this guitar feels and sounds wonderfully vintage.

At the end of the day, we probably all know roughly what a dreadnought acoustic guitar with rosewood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top is going to sound like. But this one achieves that perfect marriage of yesteryear's sound with build quality that reflects nearly 2 centuries of progress and continues to move the needle forward in terms of innovation in the design and construction process. This is a D-28 through and through... but a little better right out of the box and will only continue to improve the more it's loved and played.

Manufacturer's Description

The D-28 Modern Deluxe is a new take on Martin Vintage. This guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel, and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction that give it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The look is unlike anything in our production line to date with European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Some ultra-modern features include a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal® bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume without adding weight. And we’ve included a new neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. This guitar is anything but standard.
