The now discontinued D-28 Marquis is widely considered a true gem in the world of Martin vintage re-issues, and you only have to pick it up and play to understand why.
Part of the iconic brand's first foray into the 'Golden Era' re-issue, the Marquis' notable features include a gorgeous set of East Indian rosewood for the back and sides, with an Adirondack Spruce that sports forward shifted, scalloped 'X' bracing that lends a power and body to the sound seldom heard in other D-28s.
The playability of the guitar is superb, with a lovely balance between vintage and contemporary in regards to the profile and action. All the way through the response is clean and clear, with great definition in the lows and sweet, fat trebles all the way through to the upper registers of the fretboard.
The vintage appointments are clear throughout with the wide saddle, open back tuners and herringbone purfling contributing to a guitar that looks as much the classic Martin dreadnought as it sounds.
The guitar is in fantastic condition and comes in its original Martin branded hardcase.
