The characteristic modern guitar sound owes a great deal to Martin. The founder, Christian Martin, developed an X-brace system for internal bracing that’s now a standard for steel string guitars, and his company has remained a force to be reckoned with.

I have owned mine since 1977, and would not trade it for anything. I have heard and played alot of other makes, but they don't have what this guitar has in sound. Even my other Martin owners of D35, 41 etc. like the sound of my HD28. I also have a 1962 J45 that comes close but not quite.

This guitar plays and sounds absolutely great. It has a beautiful tone with both nice highs and warm ringing lows. Fit and finish are beautiful. The staff at Musicians Friend was very helpful and knowledgeable and went out of their way to make the buying experience the absolute best.

This is probably not the greatest bluegrass guitar, so be forewarned. But it truly has got a wonderful voice that should improve even more with age and not disappoint with familiarity.

I bought the guitar for 2,700 at guitar center in New Orleans The insterment above all plays like a dream. The neck is wider and has jumbo frets which makes finger picking and heavy bends much easier. Tonally it's beautiful. I'm a fan of rosewood however the koa is much more complex and dynamic.

All in all I think the HD28 is just an amazing acoustic guitar with a wonderful vintage vibe. It does many styles well and the craftsmanship is second to none. I compared it with the D18 and D28 and found it to be a stellar sounding guitar overall.

35 years as a musician, play guitar and percussion. Blues, rock, country, alternative, metal. Purchased online for $2800.00 Te sweetest sound I've ever heard from an acoustic guitar. Excellent vintage looks. Action too high, questionable quality control.

This is really a nice instrument. Martin has a great reputation for putting out quality instruments. They are pricey, but there's something about the Martin tone that makes this guitar a good value! [ read more on Audiofanzine ]

I bought this KEB MO from the Guitar Center here in Dallas, Texas for $2850.00 including tax. The price also included the hard shell case.

I always wanted a Martin. I read that the HD28 was THE standard. Elderly for $2000 The tone is magnificent. Clear as a bell and powerful. Martin dreadnoughts only sing when strung with medium gauge strings and this guitar is no exception.

Wow I debated for ages between this and the standard D-28. I went with this one as the pre- war detailing appealed more, the herringbone trim, forward shifted bracing, vintage style tuners etc and the aged toner looks great.

The Martin HD-28E Retro is an excellent acoustic-electric dreadnought guitar. Its slender 1 3/4" neck will appeal to some who find Martin's other neck shapes cumbersome.

    bold sound; great sustain; playable neck; a very attractive instrument overall

Not sure where to begin. I've played acoustics for over 40 years and this is, without a doubt, the best I've ever played or owned. I've had four previous Martins (2 D-28's, D12-28 and D-35) and none can compare to this particular model. I am very fussy when it comes to guitars.

It is a beautiful instrument. But, I payed five times the price for this thing comparing to an Aria Dreadnought AD50, which is as good as this guitar in his own niche (a real country and folk-rock gun). So an '8' is well enough.

I have nothing but glowing praise to say about this guitar. It's an American made standard for all acoustic guitar dreadnoughts. The workmanship is flawless, the sound has that rich sonority that is the mark of a Martin and all that I ask for from it. The action is just the way I like it.

I own a 2001 Martin HD28 and bough this guitar in 2007'. It's the the best guitar I've ever played and the sound is great. The deep basses and refreshing high notes is a pleasure to listen at. I own als a Guild D25M from 1976, also the year wehen I bought this guitar.

Would I buy another, you bet. Would I trade my HD-28V with my friend who wants to swap his D-42? No way. This is the best Martin I have played, even better that the guitars that Martin has in their Sittin' and Pickin' room in Nazareth.

playing 20 years, own a couple of Yamaha's (the guitars that I started on), a Takamine cutaway, Ibanez electric acoustic, Fender Squire, Epi LP Custom, Gibson LP Premium Plus. This is the guitar that I love. Beautiful sound, lot of emotion, the older it gets, the better it is!!
