A Look At the Martin HD-28 MV | Music Villa Custom Acoustic Guitar
CATEGORY: Product News

For many guitarists, the Martin HD-28 is the gold standard in acoustic guitars. The rosewood back and sides, paired with a Sitka spruce top and the classic herringbone inlays give the HD-28 the prized tone so many are searching for. 

So why mess with a good thing? 

At Music Villa, we are huge fans of the HD-28 but wondered what would happen if we created an HD-28 with the MV (Music Villa) custom upgrades? So we talked with the folks at the Martin Custom Shop, and the HD-28 MV was born.
Although it may look similar to a standard HD-28, the MV model features many features that make this the "Hot Rod" of Martin HD-28s.
To start the Sitka spruce top is sanded thinner than a standard HD-28, giving it a more lively characteristic. 
In addition, we used Golden Era style scalloped bracing (the scallop is closer to the "X") in the modern pattern to offer the maximum tonal response. 
All that pairs with a solid rosewood neck, bone saddle & nut and vintage style butterbean tuners to make a guitar you will treasure for years to come.
We had this Martin built with the player in mind. From tone to playability, we wanted to make sure that this would be the enthusiastic hobbyist or gigging player's go-to guitar.
