Martin 000-28 Modern Deluxe
All of our Martin 000-28 Modern Deluxe guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
The new for 2019 Modern Deluxe Series gets its inaugural short-scale model in the 00028 Modern Deluxe, an Auditorium size Martin, made with all solid tonewoods, that is more like a pre-war 000-28 than anything in Martin’s current line-up. And yet it has the most progressive features-of-the-future than any 000-28 ever made before it.
Advanced tone-enhancing technology meets vintage vibe, as the ultra-modern two-way adjustable titanium support rod reduces weight while allowing more string energy to pass through the Genuine Mahogany neck to the body, like Martin necks of old. The dark and lovely Indian rosewood body is topped with excellent Sitka spruce that has been treated with Martin’s Vintage Tone System®, the proprietary process of torrefaction that ages the top until a new guitar sounds like it was played for decades. And the scalloped braces are made of VTS Adirondack spruce previously reserved for the Authentic Series guitars, while each brace is carved like the guitars of the Golden Era Series.
And where the strings transfer their tone-producing energy to this super-responsive top, they fit under bridge pins made of futuristic Liquidmetal® that increase volume and sustain, before passing through a bridge plate of ultralight carbon fiber that delivers maximum energy transference from the strings to the bracing and the top.
This truly Deluxe model gets European flamed maple bindings, heel cap and end piece, a bone nut and saddle, a vintage Style 28 Zig-zag back strip, abalone fret makers in the long Diamonds & Squares pattern, gorgeous gold frets that are sturdier than normal frets, along with matching gold vintage tuners, and a rarely seen 1930s Martin script logo on the headstock, inlaid in stunning abalone shell. A traditional hand-fitted dovetail neck joint and natural protein glue construction for their all-important top braces ensure optimum energy exchange between neck, top, back and sides.
The neck is another amalgamation of the ultra-modern advances and classically-vintage Martin magnificence, as it combines the sleek High Performance Taper of the fretboard with the extremely comfortable Vintage Deluxe neck profile, closely inspired by an early 1930s Martin neck considered to be the most comfortable vintage neck of them all.
While this 000-28 MD has woods and features comparable to the Standard Series 000-28 and the 000-28 Eric Clapton models, it also has the feel and tone of a vintage Martin 000-28 beyond either of those worthy Martin guitars, for a price greatly below the cost of an Authentic Series guitar. When it comes down to it, there really is no comparison. This 000-28 is both more Modern and most definitely more Deluxe. The Martin 00028 Modern Deluxe is also available Left-Handed.
