Martin Guitar D-28

t can't be easy tinkering with a stone-solid legend. But Martin Guitar's new D-28 2017 tweaks the D-28 form with impressive results. The wider 1 3/4" nut width and performance taper neck are significant deviations from tradition, but the guitar feels fantastic and plays beautifully with all the punch you'd expect from a Martin Dread. This model will exist alongside the standard D-28, so purists need not fear. But this newest iteration is looking like a winner in every way. Look for a street price around $2,599
