Thanks for posting this. It would be better for the listener if you play each guitar for longer though.
It is easier to hear the differences on a slightly longer piece of music.
From what I could hear though, the Martin has a bit more depth to it, but the Stanford sounds very nice too.

Interesting. I'm gonna have to listen in more detail later. The PSD-28 certainly does give the D-35 a run for its money. You wouldn't happen to know what the bracing size is on the PSD-28 though, would you? I'm wondering if it's scalloped 5/8" bracing - and if it is then a comparison with an HD-28V might have been a better comparison. The D-35 has straight 1/4" bracing.
BTW, both guitars sound a little on the bright side because of the new strings. I ie to let them settle in for a couple of days.

You also have the limiting factors of the mic. Good A-B comparison. Both guitars sounded great. To make the choice I would have to play them both. As a listener, either one works from the sound of the clips. Thanks for spending the time.

I've actually compared this Stanford to a standard HD-28 and the Martin (that one anyway) was significantly tamer sounding. I know that the moderator on another forum just sold his HD-28 and still has his Bluerdge BR-140 for sale after having his PSD-28 less than a year.

My apologies Abando..... If you've ever done uploadable videos, they get large very quickly. I was trying to fit as many different short demos into a relatively short clip as possible. I'll make a new one up that's better for comparison purposes and not so seemingly rushed. In fact this one might be a blind (video) test, so that there is no bias for name brand.
Rhythmguitar, those Speedy Gonzalez comparisons are hysterical. Just when I start listening, bam, another one comes out. I prefer the Martin myself. Abando

If I *had* to pick, It'd be the Martin, but damn, that Stanford sounds AWEFULLY good for $600!
