Redesigned neck to offer a slimmer, faster profile.
The Martin D-28P Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar features the High Performance Neck found on Martin's popular Performing Artist series guitars, redesigned to offer a slimmer, faster profile and more comfortable spacing in the first frets and faster action as the player moves up the fingerboard. The bridge spacing has been increased as well to provide more hand comfort when resting on the bridge.
The D-28P is constructed of East Indian rosewood on the back and sides that provides this model with the bass response and tonal projection that makes the D-28P the first choice for acoustic musicians.

Comments about Martin Standard Series D-28P Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:
I've only had this guitar for 24 hours but it didn't take long for me to fall in love. I've owned everything from ovations to a Martin D18. Most Martin owners will be quick to tell you that nothing sounds as good as a Martin. The D28P lives up to the legend.
What makes the D28P unique is that it has a new thinner and slightly wider neck. If you play lead you will love the lower action. Bending at the 12-14 frets is much easier than on the traditional D28 neck (remember it is still an acoustic so don't compare it to your Les Paul). Despite the new neck this guitar maintains the great tone that D28's are known for.
One thing I did notice was that the A string rings louder than the rest of the strings. This is not a bad thing. When playing an open C chord the tone and balance is perfect.
Go to your local music store and play one of these guitars. Compare it to the original D28 and decide which works for your playing style. Regardless of which you choose, you can't go wrong with a Martin.
