Martin have really hit it out of the park with the new Modern Deluxe Series!
*We've had this guitar professionally set up by Chris Melville, one of Australia's best luthiers who has made guitars for players like Tommy Emmanuel, Tony McMannus and Karin Schaupp, and it's playing like a dream.*
The D-28 Modern Deluxe is a new take on Martin Vintage. This guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel, and hear for yourself.
The vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction that give it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The look is unlike anything in their production line to date with European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock.
Some ultra-modern features include a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal® bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume without adding weight. And Martin have designed a new neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard.
This guitar is anything but standard.
