How much does the Martin HD-28 Cost?
The Martin HD-28 is a high-end acoustic guitar, currently retailing at $3,799.00 on Sweetwater, which is typically mirrored on other major retailers, with the exception o the specialized versions of the HD-28.
Given the historical popularity of the original D-28, the HD-28 is in a similar position, well within the upper tier of Martin's pricing scope. All the wood used is solid, with a Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back/sides. This alone will run up the cost of acoustic guitars. Since Martin is one of the oldest and most trusted acoustic guitar manufacturers in existence, the price of guitars in the HD line is not going to fluctuate a lot.
Comparisons would include the D-28 (mentioned earlier), the D-35, and OM-28, just to name a few.
