The HD-28MP takes on the best of Martin's classic HD-28 with the addition of some premium modern features. A set of premium Madagascar rosewood adds tonal range and depth to this already great sounding guitar while a “Performing Artist” neck with a wider nut width adds to its playability.

Beautiful in appearance, Madagascar rosewood adds tonal clarity and overtones to the guitar and complements the sitka spruce top to give a big articulate sound. Martin only made this model for just over a year between 2010-2011 as Madagascar rosewood ran scarce. It is often now only reserved for small batches of limited runs.

This consigned guitar has been kept in immaculate condition and is as good as new. A new custom HD-28 ordered today with similar upgrades will cost north of USD$5000 before shipping and tax, making this guitar quite a keeper both in tone and value appreciation matched perhaps only by the Martin HD-28 Marquis today.
