The Life and Times of my 1981 Martin HD-28 - Ask Zac 119

April 17, 2020

My 1981 Martin HD-28 has been by my side for close to 30-years. It's seen time in bars, churches, studios, and even a time or two on the Grand Ole Opry. Today, I look a bit at the history of the D-28/HD-28 Martins and then tell the story of how I bought my HD-28, and some of the gigs I have used it on, including one with JD Simo that included an interesting clothing accessory. I end with a tonal comparison between the HD-28, a mid-30s Gibson L-OO, and a Waterloo WL-14.
