The HD-28-VS brings together some of the finest elements of Martins capability and is sonically one of my very favorite guitars.  The body is a full D sized dreadnaught with sloped shoulders.  This large cavity produces a thunderous tone.  Soundboard is the finest Sitka spruce finished in aged toner.  Sides and back are beautifully polished rosewood.  The real significance of the HD-28-VS is the 12 fret neck, pushing the bridge right into the sweetspot of the top.  The neck is 1-3/4 inch width at the nut and sports a beautiful slotted headstock finished in Waverly open gear tuners.  This is one of the loudest, yet clearest guitars I have ever heard and produces a wonderful warm and mellow tone that is immediately identified as Martin.
