Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe VTS Top in the Acoustic Guitars category
Stunning tonewoods A timeless masterpiece. This is an instrument that is very much entrenched in tradition. By using handmade techniques that were used over a century ago the craftsmanship involved in creating this work of art is as clear as day. The genuine mahogany neck provides a firm mid range that radiates from the belly of the D-28. You can feel the history flow out of the dreadnought body as you strike a chord – its truly remarkable. That classic Martin sound brought back to life. By using modern day technology of thermal ageing theyve managed to replicate the DNA of some of their oldest models – reviving that authentic 1830s sound. By cooking the Sitka spruce in a vacuum it produces the enhanced tones from that golden era. Its the closest thing to time travel – encounter this phenomenon firsthand. Comfortable playability Martin truly understand the needs of acoustic guitar players and thats why theyve given everything to ensure the best playing experience possible. The highly developed D-28 removes any unnecessary discomfort that may occur during a lengthy jam session. With a narrower vintage deluxe neck it relieves you of any exerted pressure when its in your hand – making those chord changes that much smoother. Luxury epitomised. For all you folk lovers – fingerpicking has never been made easier. The smooth ebony fretboard contributes to the playability allowing you to glide from chord to chord with complete ease. Itll also remove any cramp you might experience throughout a live show. Relax and perform with confidence because you can depend on the D-28 – just like Paul McCartney regularly does… A modern classic Considered measured and authentic. Martin have expertly combined both classic and modern features to provide you with an instrument that has the very best of both worlds. As you look at the D-28 your eyes are immediately drawn to that classic logo on the headstock. Taken from an 1830s model its the crown that has become ever so distinguishable. Crafted from pearl it beautifully complements the pearl side dot inlays. Not to mention the gold plated open gear tuners and frets – beauty unrivalled. These vintage aesthetics are coupled with unique hardware that makes the guitar ready for the 21st Century. The Liquidmetal custom bridge pins allows your guitar to reflect your playing energy rather than absorb. This increases the volume of your playing by 3 to 5 decibels whilst adding that extra bit of sustain. Its lighter too. A titanium truss rod reduces weight by 60% compared to traditional steel rods. Lightweight durable and very responsive – Martin have pulled out all the stops to engineer the ultimate acoustic guitar. Made with absolute precision Using state of the art technology Martin produce their guitars with exquisite accuracy. The development of the Plek system highlights the attention to detail that has gone into the D-28. They carefully place the guitar into a string tension simulator which optimises the string action. This recreates playing conditions to ensure the guitars pitch is flawless. By scanning the fretboard it also finds any uneven angles so that it can be dressed to perfection – giving you that classic Martin playability. Custom built for you. Lasting Martin legacy A seed first sewn in 1833 by founder Christian Frederick Martin it planted the foundation of all acoustic guitars that we know and love today. No wonder its been used by some of the most influential guitarists of all time. From Neil Youngs complex fingerpicking style to Kurt Cobains punchy MTV unplugged chords – the guitars dynamic ability to adapt to any type of genre is extraordinary. It continues to flourish and evolve whilst managing to preserve that classic sound and philosophy that has become archetypal of Martin. Top quality guitars top quality sound. Safe and sound A guitar this good deserves to be kept in pristine condition. Martin have included a ply hardshell case the ideal environment to keep your D-28 in. This ensures its protected and kept out of harms way. You can trust that your instrument will remain in the condition you first bought it – allowing you to treasure it for years to come. So just like the Martin way you can pass this down for generations – this is yours forever… Specifications Body Model Name: Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe VTS Top Top Material: Sitka Spruce with VTS Back and Side Material: East Indian Rosewood Brace Shape: Scalloped Top Back and Side Finish: Gloss Colour: Natural Pickguard: Faux Tortoise Body Shape: Dreadnought Neck and Fingerboard Neck Material: Genuine Mahogany Neck Shape: Vintage Deluxe Neck Finish: Satin Neck Taper: High Performance Taper Fretboard Material: Ebony Fingerboard Inlay Material: Abalone Fretboard Width (at nut): 1 3/4″ Fretboard Width (at 12th fret): 2 1/8″ Frets: 20 Top Inlay: Bold Herringbone Back Inlay Material: Multi-Stripe Endpiece: European Flamed Maple Binding and Endpiece: European Flamed Maple Headstock Headstock Shape: Solid with Square Taper and Diamond Headstock Material: East Indian Rosewood Headstock Logo Style Stylized Script Inlay Hardware Tuning Machines: Gold Open Gear Bridge: Walnut Bridge Pin Material: Liquidmetal Bridge Pin Dots: Red Acrylic Saddle: Compensated Bone Nut: Bone Truss Rod Material: Titanium Miscellaneous Accessories: Ply Hardshell Recommended Strings: Authentic Acoustic Medium (SMA55OT)
Gibson Brands, Inc. (formerly Gibson Guitar Corporation) is an American manufacturer of guitars, other musical instruments, and professional audio equipment from Kalamazoo, Michigan, and now based in Nashville, Tennessee. The company was formerly known as Gibson Guitar Corporation and renamed Gibson Brands, Inc. on June 11, 2013.34
Orville Gibson started making instruments in 1894 and founded the company in 1902 as the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to make mandolin-family instruments.1 Gibson invented archtop guitars by constructing the same type of carved, arched tops used on violins. By the 1930s, the company was also making flattop acoustic guitars, as well as one of the first commercially available hollow-body electric guitars, used and popularized by Charlie Christian. In 1944, Gibson was bought by Chicago Musical Instruments (CMI), which was acquired in 1969 by Panama-based conglomerate Ecuadorian Company Limited (ECL), that changed its name in the same year to Norlin Corporation. Gibson was owned by Norlin Corporation from 1969 to 1986. In 1986, the company was acquired by a group led by Henry Juszkiewicz and David H. Berryman. In November 2018, the company was acquired by a group of investors led by private equity firm KKR & Co. Inc. (formerly known as Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and KKR & Co. L.P.).
Gibson sells guitars under a variety of brand names5 and builds one of the world’s best-known guitars, the Gibson Les Paul. Gibson was at the forefront of innovation in acoustic guitars, especially in the big band era of the 1930s; the Gibson Super 400 was widely imitated. In 1952, Gibson introduced its first solid-body electric guitar, the Les Paul, which became its most popular guitar to date— designed by a team led by Ted McCarty.
In addition to guitars, Gibson offers consumer electronics through its subsidiaries KRK, Cerwin Vega, and Stanton, Gibson Pro Audio line.
On May 1, 2018, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection,6 and announced a restructuring plan to return to profitability by closing down unprofitable consumer electronics divisions such as Gibson Innovations
