This new Martin D-28 Marquis is a guitar that you will fall in love with from the word "go." True, we're big believers in acoustic guitars "opening up" over time, getting better and better as the years go on. The fact that this one sounds amazing right from the factory is a good sign that this is one Martin for the ages. The D-28 Marquis Sunburst features “Martin Golden Era” (1930-1940) appointments like the dovetail neck joint, scalloped and forward shifted x-bracing, modified V neck shape, snowflake inlays, open gear tuners, bone nut, etc.
