I'm struggling to find the words to describe just how great this special ordered Martin Dreadnought is. It's closest in spec to an HD-28 with its herringbone binding, spruce top, rosewood back and sides, and ebony fingerboard and bridge, but the extra appointments on the neck add another layer of beauty that nearly lives up to the sound. I say "nearly" because this is what a dreadnought is supposed to sound like, and in the 30 years since rolling out of the factory it has only improved. The low end is killer, the highs are sweet, and it has an earthy/woody quality that you'll instantly fall in love with. It more than lives up to its dreadnought moniker. The harder you strum, the louder it gets and it really projects. It's a cannon with lots of midrange punch when you lay into it. This thing responds wonderfully and is equally adept at delivering the prettiest tone you've ever heard when it comes time for those quieter passages. It has no issues outside of light finish wear. It has been well cared for over the years. Good neck angle, 1-3/4" wide at the nut, subtle-v shape, excellent fret life.
