Martin D-28 Marquis - Natural Reviews

    Oh oh oh it's magic

    You know? That crisp, beefy, crystal-clear acoustic guitar sound you've had in your head for years? That guitar that can fills all the space you need for accompaniment but still sits well in a dense mix?

    That's the D-28 Marquis. It's a magical guitar, and it only gets better with age. I got mine four years ago and it had already been around for twelve year, but I swear it sounds better every time I pick it up. It's amazing - every note rings clear and true up and down the neck in every position and the intonation stays good to the last fret. Play it for thirty minutes and feels your loins start to rustle, it's so good.

    It's the only acoustic I think I'll ever need.

    This is a tremendous guitar.

    Try this: Play every Martin up the line in price, starting at about $2,000. Be sure to test the D-35 and all the D-28 models. Four of us spent several hours doing exactly that, and the D-28 Marquis was the WOW.

    D-28 Marquis

    I did not get this guitar through this store, but I have to say that this is one of the best guitars I have ever played. I have a 2005 model, and got it a little under a year ago. I play Bluegrass, Irish Folk, and Worship Music with this work of art. It boasts beautiful lows and mids with rounded high end tones. While it is not necessarily ideal for Worship Music (the highs cutting through the mix), I have fixed the situation by using a Fishman off board pre-amp. But for natural recording, this guitar literally blows me away. Do yourself and your heirs a favor...get this guitar.

    Great guitar

    I got my Marquis about a month ago and the ONLY disappointment was the pretty lousy action it came with from the factory. However, after taking to the local expert luthier, i will say this is my favorite acoustic of all time. The action is now as good or better than my Taylor 512 and my Larivee OM. I like the wider nut width of 1.75in combined with that signature Martin booming tone. I've have many Taylors, Larivees and Breedloves, and while they all have great attributes and are high quality guitars, the Marquis surpasses them with its seeminly endless dynamic range and rich tone. Despite the price, i am extremely happy with this pirchase and the folks at Sweetwater made it a great, fearless, buying experience.
