Product information - Martin D-28CO Cocobolo Custom

All-solid dreadnought acoustic guitar from the Custom Shop with Sitka spruce top and cocobolo body, case included

The Martin D-28CO Cocobolo Custom from the traditional American manufacturer is one of its famous Custom Shop models, which is equipped with high-quality materials and impresses not only with its unique appearance but also with its incomparable sound. The craftsmanship of the almost 200-year-old family business is easily recognisable in the carefully selected fine woods and, in addition to a solid construction, gives the instrument the quintessence that has delighted Martin fans all over the world to this day. An interplay of reddish cocobolo wood and a construction that has been thought through to the millimetre produces a fast-responding sound that fades out persistently in the overtones and transitions smoothly into the next note. The playability of the flat mahogany neck brings great pleasure up to the highest frets as well, since a flat Modified-Low-Oval neck profile allows a clean grip with little effort. The characteristic headstock is fitted with open-gear nickel tuners, which, along with the venerable Martin lettering and a headplate made of strikingly grained cocobolo, subtly emphasise the guitar's value. The Martin D-28CO Cocobolo Custom comes with a custom-fit moulded hardshell case and a certificate.

Martin D-28CO Cocobolo Custom body

A top made from the finest Sitka spruce

To produce a light and powerful response, the manufacturer relies on the wood of the Californian Sitka spruce, which has a powerful vibration behaviour due to its fine structure, which is additionally favoured by a forward-shifted X-bracing and a wafer-thin high-gloss finish. The high-quality spruce top produces a very clear and voluminous sound, which is particularly pronounced in the mid and treble frequencies. Framed by an elaborate multi-ply binding, the even grain of the wood is particularly accentuated and thus receives a high-quality touch, which is further enriched by a multi-stripe soundhole rosette and a wafer-thin tortoise pickguard. The white bridge pins with tortoise dots set into a dark ebony bridge create a fine interplay between binding, soundhole and the fingerboard resting on the top.

Martin D-28CO Cocobolo Custom back

Back and sides in cocobolo

Easily recognisable by its versatile marbled grain, the body made of the finest cocbolo gives the instrument a unique touch that lives up to the custom shop designation in every respect. The hinged back is divided with an elaborate backstripe, which emphasises the symmetry of the wood in a very tasteful way. Sonically, the rare tropical wood provides a rich tone that colours the bass frequencies in a strong and defined way and gives the large dreadnought construction a fundamental saturation. The white rather plain binding draws a clear boundary between the individual components of the body and thus creates an aesthetic contrast that clearly emphasises the value of the woods used. Thanks to the polished lacquer finish, the multi-faceted grain with its coarse patterns and lines also stands out in a reddish or brown colour, depending on the angle of view.

Martin D-28CO Cocobolo Custom head

Ideal neck construction for a comfortable playing feel

To ensure clean access to all 20 frets, the manufacturer relies on a flat mahogany neck equipped with a Modified Low Oval profile and an ebony fingerboard marked with plain abalone dot inlays that contrastingly merge with the light spruce top at the 14th fret. Clean intonation over the entire 645 mm scale length is ensured by a compensated saddle made of bone, which is optimally adapted to a 44.45 mm wide bone nut. Open-gear nickel tuners allow precise tuning of the strings and, in combination with a tasteful headplate made of evenly grained cocobolo and a script old-style overlay, round off the overall appearance in a very tasteful way.
