    "The Martin of all Martins!!!!"

    Sound:
    This is the Martin of all Martins. The lows have a sound that haunts you, and the highs are crystal clear. This guitar has that "piano" boom to it. Martin is the only guitar out there that has that deep, rich, fullfilling tone.
    Feature:
    Pretty plain jane guitar. Not too fancy on decals etc... But who needs a guitar - like a Takamine that looks nice and sounds like crap. The sound on a Martin D-28 or any other Martin for that matter MORE than makes up for the looks. If you want the Martin sound with the sweet looks pick up a D-45, mind you the looks don't improve the sound.
    Ease of Use:
    I have twelve acoustics and this one by far plays the easiest of all of them. Plus this guitar is noticable lighter than most acoustics so it doesn't feel like a 50 pound block of wood when you're trying to play it.
    Quality:
    It is the Martin of all Martins, Nuff said!!
    Manufacturer Support:
    Never had to deal with their support staff yet but I have heard nothing but positive reviews from other people I know who own Martins.
    Value:
    Considering that you can pay up around $4000 for a gibson, takamine, taylor etc that sounds have as good as a Martin I would say the value is next to none. Worth every penny.
    The Wow Factor:
    Put it this way, if you ever show up at a gig or jam session etc... with a Martin in your hands, your choice in guitars will never be looked down upon.
    Overall:
    This guitar is a dream to play and to own. My best advice is that if you are only ever going to buy one guitar, save the few extra nickles and dimes in your piggy bank and buy a Martin. You will not be dissappointed!

    "A work of guitar buiding art."

    Sound:
    Rich, warm, resonant, alive.. what you would expect from Rosewood back and sides.
    Feature:
    This is the most beautiful collection of tone woods that I have seen on one instrument in a while. It was as if Martin wanted to make a statement with this one.
    Quality:
    Perfect craftsmanship. I have not be able to detect a single flaw. I had looked at dozens of guitars and 'this was the one'.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Never had a problem with Martin. Very freindly and helpful
    Value:
    Now, with wood like this getting near impossible to find, I feel lucky to have found one that is this nice, at any price.
    The Wow Factor:
    I got it for background acoustic guitar recording. I have tried several other high end brands but, the D-28 is the only one that provided me with a totally balanced acoustic sound. Just what I was looking for!
    Overall:
    This is a keeper. It would be hard, if not impossible, to replace. Good looks and great sound are not easy to find in one instrument these days. I actual demo-ed some guitars that had wood with knots, sawed off branched, wanes an disease for the same price or more!

    Martin D28 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (with Case) Customer Review

    Sound:
    Warm clean and resonant. Crisp highs and smooth bottom lows. A little softer on the bottom compared to my D-35 (1970), but more presence, compared to my D-15M And D-16Gt. Probably my second best Playing guitar the D-35 is best, better than my Dove and J-45 Gibs. The Guild J-55 is my best Jumbo. The guy who complained about the Newer Martins playing like $150 guitars has been hanging out in Amsterdam Coffeeshops too long. I have old and new Martins and no personal contact with the company, but I tell you that there quality is still top notch and being a guitar junky I play different Martins every two weeks at various Guitar Centers. No Martins are still pretty darn good....Sorry about his bad luck. I seem to have more problems by far with Gibsons from the seventies, while the Martins play great and sund even better.
    Feature:
    Top quality pick-up system and hardware especially the ebony fingerboard. But not fancy, showy or luxurious looking like the Dove or J-200, or D-41 even
    Ease of Use:
    Plays like butter no manual is necessary for this babe. I cut into BellBottoms Blues, then Bad Moon Rising and slid into some Hendrix with Purple Haze, the Wind Cries Mary and All Along the Watchtower ending with a short rendition of Take Five. They all sounded good
    Quality:
    Best Simple instrument of sound I every bought, a work of Music Artistry. No Blems or nicks or I always keep a back-up for string breakages

    By a customer from cox.net

    Style of Music: bluegrass, gospel, some rock and roll.

    "All the guitar you will ever need."

    Sound:
    Lots and lots of bass, but still has plenty of mids, but a little light on trebles. The standard, non-scalloped bracing is the same type Martin used back in the 1940s. Actually, not much of anything has changed about the D-28 since the 40s. If you do it right the first time. . . . .
    Feature:
    One a speck of abalone on this guitar. When you buy a D-28, your money is buying JUST an acoustic guitar, instead of all the artistry you see on many other makes and models. High quality Sitka spruce and East Indian Rosewood with ebony fretboard and bridge. Simple white/black/white rosette and binding.
    Quality:
    Surprisingly high grade tops for this price range, and, like all Martin guitars, is hand made to some degree. The "Standard Series," of which the D-28, D-18, D28HD etc. belong to are all hand-fitted. Bridges, saddles, nuts, frets, you name it, are all put together by Martin guitar builders, some of whom have been with the company for generations. They know how to make a guitar! The finish is always supurb.
    Manufacturer Support:
    They have a call-in number, as well as fax and e-mail numbers, with same day or next day answers.
    Value:
    I would be very hard pressed to name a guitar of equal value for it's surprisingly moderate price range. There are plenty of guitars that cost much more that can't hold a light to a D-28
    The Wow Factor:
    Playing one shows you know the value of a dollar, and are willing to wait until you find the best. The most recognized guitar in the world. Most people think "guitar," and they think Martin.
    Overall:
    You'll never feel the need to upgrade to a higher-end guitar after you buy a D-28. It's perfect the way it is, so please leave it alone! I make sure I have this guitar insured for it's list price in case it gets stolen, or I lose it to some natural disaster.
