For many guitarists, the Martin D-28 defines the term “acoustic guitar.” But if you’re looking to take your D-28 experience one step beyond, then check out today’s Guitar of the Day, the Martin HD-28 SE. The “H” in the name indicates herringbone trim (and other HD features, such as the scalloped X bracing) and the “SE” indicates “Sweetwater Edition.” Our team of guitar tone fanatics sat down with the luthiers at Martin and specified everything required to maximize the already incredible tone of the HD-28. The HD-28 SE uses an upgraded solid Adirondack spruce top for the ultimate acoustic tone, then we add a premium Fishman Ellipse Blend pickup system for the ultimate plugged-in tone.
Of course, like all HD-28s, the SE features a rosewood back and sides, the Style 28 rosette, a solid mahogany neck, a solid black ebony fingerboard, a compensated saddle, a Corian nut, a solid black ebony bridge, and a beautiful polished gloss finish with aging toner. This is one gorgeous instrument that creates an equally gorgeous tone!
This special Sweetwater-edition HD-28 is only available here, at Sweetwater!
