Martin HD-28E Retro Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Hardcase (HD28E Retro)
Short of breaking into the Martin Museum, the HD-28E Retro is the closest any of us will probably ever get to handling a "golden-era" Martin instrument. The original HD-28 dreadnought (like the D-28) established the very tone of the acoustic guitar in modern American music, and there's nothing like the sound of a classic Martin to prove it. That's why Chris Martin got together with Larry Fishman to capture a complete series of spectral models from the very original guitars on display at the Martin Museum. At the same time, the HD-28E Retro comes fitted with an entirely modern Martin neck carve. The result is a classic-looking and vintage-sounding HD-28 that plays like a dream.
