  • acoustic guitars

Series name: 

Variant of:

This guitar is a Sigma by Martin which was produced to compete with the lower priced asian models.

D - Dreadnought

R - Rosewood

28 - Designed after the "classical"  D - 28 Martin

Made in Japan 1977 until 1982 when production moved to Korea

The logo on the head actually says "Sigma by Martin Est. 1970"

There are many who flame and spam forums saying that they are fakes and not Martin, and nothing could be further from the truth.  Is a Toyota Camry manufactured in the US, not a Toyota?

The later Sigmas manufactured in Taiwan were a little suspect as to quality.

I bought one about 10 yrs ago in great condition-was told it was from 1976 ? - they do not say Sigma by Martin on Headstock- they say Sigma Guitars est 1970. Mine is from Japan and it is built beautifully and sounds great-
