Extra appointments over a regular d 28 are nice, i would love to own it. I may have to look into the L&M budget payment plan, this guitar is haunting me.

The Martin D28 is the most prized and iconic guitar for its noteworthy projection and uniquely identifiable tone since it was introduced in 1931. The D28 utilizes quality tone woods and is exceptionally well made. In my view Martin has created an acoustic icon. The D28 captures the essence of balance, tone and note separation rarely found on other guitars. Perhaps that's why the D28 has been cherished by many artists in so many different genres? From Blues to Bluegrass, Rock and Country, artists such as Jimmy Page, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison and Paul McCartney have all played and recorded on the D28. That being said the D28 is not cheap and it?s not flashy. However, its projection, estimable tone and build quality has made it the most copied guitar in existence! Looking at the racks of guitars at Long and McQuade it is easy to see how it could get lost in the myriad of choices and price points. Don't be fooled. Examine the Martin and decide for yourself? I did. I played and asked others play for me essentially every guitar in Long and McQuade. Many thanks to L&M Staff and those customers who freely offered their time and assistance! After comparing the tonal qualities of virtually every guitar in store the LM60-D28 stood out to me as the best sounding guitar overall. The final result was a surprise to me given that some guitars examined were selling for hundreds more and in one case thousands more than the LM60-D28! What makes the LM60- D28 so special? I believe this guitar characterizes the clearest notes, the best balance and the most pleasing tone of any guitar in the store. Moreover, I liked the fact that the LM60-D28 is one of only 60 such guitars uniquely made for Canadian Long and McQuade customers. Who knows the LM60-D28 may be worth a whole lot more someday?
