Your chance to own a very special D-28

Since its introduction in 1930s, the Martin D-28 has remained the standard by which all large bodied, steel-string acoustic guitars are measured. While the standard D28 utilizes solid spruce and solid East Indian rosewood for the back and sides, the CS-D28-12 Limited Edition sports a premium solid Adirondack spruce top and rare Mexican cocobolo back and sides. Genuine ebony is used for the fingerboard and bridge. With its rich resonant warmth, the D28 is particularly well suited to bluegrass, country, and other musical styles requiring loud, powerful rhythm accompaniment.

Birth of an iconic guitar design

In the midst of the Great Depression, Martin managed to create two guitars that have remained incredibly popular to this day - in fact, the D-28 and the D-18 share what has become an iconic design. By introducing the dreadnought body shape into their lineup, Martin brought powerful bass and projection to guitarists - a real plus in an era before electric guitars entered the scene. The CS-D28-12 continues the Martin tradition, with premium tonewoods, components, and craftsmanship.

Martin quality since 1833

So, why does a Martin sound so good? Consider the fact that the company has been making quality instruments since 1833, and what we might consider "modern" acoustic guitars since early in the 20th century. What's more, the company's commitment to quality has never wavered, so whether you're investing in a brand-new D-28 or inheriting a family heirloom vintage Martin, you know you're getting the best. The CS-D28-12 Limited Edition acoustic guitar is an instrument that you'll want to keep for a lifetime, and you'll love Martin's uncompromising quality.
