Martin HD-28 MV Custom Sunburst Short Scale


Available on backorder

Product Description

“The benefit of the MV Custom HD-28 Short Scale is not only the ease of play, because of the shorter neck & less string tension but there is also a great tone advantage… short scale dreadnoughts are very warm and responsive giving the guitar a wonderfully open musical sound.”  – Chad Fadely (Acoustic Letter Acoustic Specialist)

This custom Music Villa (Hot Rod) model Short Scale HD-28 features a thinner (.105″) sitka spruce top, golden era style bracing, shorter scale length (24.9″), east indian rosewood back and sides, 1-11/16″ bone nut (on an angle). These special custom upgrades combined with the shorter scale length give this particular model a very warm toneful responsiveness with lots of power.
