Martin D28 Marquis Madagascar DISCONTINUED

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Note!  The Martin Marquis line including the D28 Marquis, has been discontinued by Martin and is no longer available as new – it’s been replaced by other models.   This post is maintained for historical purposes only.     If you were looking for one of these, please contact us for other options. 

The Marquis line from Martin guitars provides players with a vintage aesthetic and great tone shaping features. The grain patterns and red color hues on the back had me in awe upon first look and then came the tone!

With an Adirondack top and forward shifted scalloped X-braces the Martin D28 Marquis has tons of headroom and clarity to go with the full woody bass response. The beautiful set of Madagascar rosewood on this guitar added punch in the lower mid range and clarity to the overtones!
