I've been playing guitar for over 30 years. My first guitar lesson was when I was 10 years old. I play guitar and mandolin. Currently i'm playing in a folk/bluegrass trio, and a four-piece rock band. My musical tastes range from rock, folk, blues, jazz.

I purchased my one year old Marting HD28 used through Guitar Center for $1500. I wanted a quality acoustic for playing in my band.

The Martin HD28 is a fantastic guitar! Martin quality, all solid woods, great tone. It has beautiful rosewood sides and back, mahogany neck, and an ebony fretboard. The herringbone trim really sets this guitar apart! The Gotoh chrome tuners are tight, and it comes with a nice hardshell case to protect your investment. This guitar sounds wonderful! It has that ringing Martin tone, deep lows and sparkly highs. And boy does it cut through the mix! You don't have to worry about getting drowned out by the banjos! A great guitar for a great price.

I have to admit, I haven't found anything I don't like about this guitar!

Martin quality! Need I say more? Quality fit and finish, beautiful tone woods, a guitar that looks great and sounds fantastic!

This is really a nice instrument. Martin has a great reputation for putting out quality instruments. They are pricey, but there's something about the Martin tone that makes this guitar a good value!
