Product Description

The Martin HD28 has long been one of Martin’s top selling guitars. The scuttlebutt on the streets and among guitarists is that it’s the best SOUNDING Martin guitar too. So with all of this great fan feedback for this legendary guitar, we decided to mess around with a good thing to see if we could make it even better. 

Yes yes yes, we know this experiment could have gone wrong in so many ways, but we have great news… IT WORKED!!!

Whenever someone comes into the store and plays the standard HD-28 and then picks up the MV HD-28, we always get a resounding “this feels really good.”

This Music Villa exclusive Martin guitar is a power-house acoustic only available from Music Villa in beautiful Bozeman, Montana. Please CALL NOW if interested.

    Great guitar, hard to put down; very comfortable to jam for hours. Sound is well balanced and super responsive. Easily the best sounding HD-28 I have played. Online purchase/shipping was top notch.

  3. :

    Just picked this guitar up from Music Villa. Thanks Paul for all the extra help. I feel very fortunate to study about the specs of this guitar and others from all of the outstanding videos available on this website. This HD28 MV Custom. Is the fifth guitar I have purchased from Music Villa. I love playing new guitars and this HD is warm and rich, but still tight tonally, not overwhelming or sloppy in the low end. It’s a cannon if you lean into it, but subtle with a light finger style touch. Very pleased.
