Introduced in 1976, the HD-28 represents the recreation of Martin's legendary ''herringbone'' D-28 style guitars. Considered by many players to be the best sounding of all Martin guitars, the HD-28's vintage features include herringbone top trim, a traditional "zig-zag" backstrip, and Martin's famous scalloped X-bracing that allows the top to vibrate more freely, yielding a louder, more open tone.
