The Martin & Co HD-28 is made in the USA and has 20 frets total. It is not an acoustic/electric guitar so it doesn't have any pick ups or controls. The neck is made out of dark mahogany and feels very good on the fingers.

UTILIZATION

The neck of the Martin HD-28 feels very fluid and is really easy to play. Compared to other acoustic guitars, the HD-28 feels like water and the action is just about perfect. It is easy to play all around the neck and while it has a pretty standard shape and weight, this guitar is anything but standard. Its pretty easy to get a good sound from this guitar, as it is honestly one of the best sounding guitars I've ever played.

SOUNDS

The Martin HD-28 is a great acoustic guitar for any type of music, but I use it mostly for rock and folk music. The tone is extremely rich and vibrant and is an extreme pleasure to listen to. Each note radiates in a special light that is seldom seen in most guitars. There isn't too much that can really be said - one you try it out for yourself you will know what I am talking about...it just sounds that great.

OVERALL OPINION

I first used the Martin HD-28 about two years ago and whenever I get the chance it record with it, it is really a pleasure to work with because getting a good recorded sound is incredibly simple with this guitar. While there are a few other Martin guitars that sound as good as the HD-28, but there really aren't that many. If you are looking for one of the best guitars that money can buy, and a lot of money that is, the Martin HD-28 is a great choice and is truly one of the best guitars I've ever had the pleasure of using.
