D-28 JOHN LENNON

Imagine all the songs that you could play on this. I’ll give you some truth about this model, it’s a D-28 with a few spec changes and additions. The solid Sitka spruce top is enhanced with Martin’s VTS (Vintage Tone System) and the X-bracing is rearward shifted making for tight bass response. Peace sign inlay on the back and adorned with Lennon self-portrait headstock and Lennon inspired fret inlays.

$7,995.

HD-28 AMBERTONE

The HD-28 has to be one of Martin’s most popular models and this one is a super solid with a very tastefully understated “ambertone” top, which offsets the herringbone binding making it glorious piece. Standard X shape scalloped bracing allows the Solid Sitka spruce top to rumble out bold bass-y tones for all to hear. Pick up a stone cold classic with an individual look.
