The new Martin 000-28 Modern Deluxe draws from the well of the 000 body design, and adds both new and old technologies, including natural glues, a titanium truss rod, and Martin’s VTS aging method.

As on the classic 000-28, the pairing of a Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood sides and back on the Martin 000-28 Modern Deluxe produces a rich and full-bodied tone with plenty of complex overtones. The addition of the Vintage Tone System (VTS) to the top effectively simulates the cellular changes that occur over decades, and helps make this guitar sound like a fine vintage piece – but in perfect, brand new condition.

Martin’s X bracing pattern of the top is scalloped which removes some mass and allows the top to vibrate more increasing volume and bass response. As well, the Martin 000-28 Modern Deluxe adds a composite Carbon Fibre bridge plate, which is lighter and stronger than other materials and increases volume.

The shorter scale length in combination with the smaller orchestra body provides a great level of comfort and playability to go along with the Martin 000-28 Modern Deluxe rich complex tone and timeless style.

The Martin 000-28 is sold with a Martin hard shell case.

More From The Builder On The Martin 000-28 Modern Deluxe:

“The 000-28 Modern Deluxe is a new take on Martin Vintage. This guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel, and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction that give it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations.

The look is unlike anything in our production line to date with European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Some ultra-modern features include a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal® bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume without adding weight.

And we’ve included a new neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. This guitar is anything but standard.”
