Martin Guitar HD-28 (Left) & John Mayer D-45 (Right)
Martin Guitar came in strong at NAMM with new entries in their Standard Series Reimagined, like the HD-28 at left, which features the company’s scalloped bracing, vintage style antique white binding, a faster modern neck, open gear tuners and an aged finish. List is $3,799 for that model. And on the right. That’s a John Mayer D-45 with Engelmann spruce top, rosewood back and sides, forward shifted X bracing, hex inlays and highly detailed binding. It’s fancy and it’s $14,999.
