Martin, C.F.: HD28

(Item ID: HD28    Serial#: 2137542)

Martin, C.F. HD28 Dreadnought with Rosewood and Spruce and Herringbone Top Trim.

Visually, there is an obvious cosmetic difference between the HD-28 and its cousin the D-28 which is the herringbone trim around the top of the HD-28. The less obvious but much more important structural difference between the two is the use of scalloped top braces on the HD-28. The reduced mass of the scalloped braces allows for a more flexible soundboard which releases vibrating string's energy more readily. This liberating function serves, among other things, to increase the amplitude of the sound - the instrument is louder!

In general, with all other structural features being the same, the simple use of scalloped top braces on the HD-28 gives it a louder, more expansive aspect than the D-28. It is as if the classic voice of the D-28 with all of its intrinsic tonal properties has been enhanced by moving it from a recital hall into a concert hall.

This guitar includes a deluxe molded archtop hardshell case.
