Here are some suggestions besides the K&K (love it in my Gibson J45):

James May's UltraTonic: Very intelligent design based on the K&K but better and more consistent sounding (less boom and low end rumble, good high end), super glue install, love it in my Merrill C28.

Schatten HFN: First choice when ease of installation is important, double adhesive install, sounds great in my Merrill OM18 and Altman A super SS+.

Dazzo: As natural as a pick up can sound once you chose the right size, epoxy install, love it in my Merrill OM28. I'd suggest 60s or 70s for your HD28V, but better ask Teddy Randazzo, who invented this awesome pickup.

Altman Super SS2+, Blazer & Henkes HD18, Merrill OM18, 1934 Martin 017, 1937 National Duolian, 1920s Weissenborn style 4
mandolin family, dobro, lap steel, 5-string banjo
PU: Dazzo, UltraTonic, Mimesis Kudos, Schatten HFN, K&K Trinity
mics: DPA4061, K&K Trinity, Neumann KM85
preamps: Grace Felix 2, SunnAudio,ToneDexter, RedEye, Fishman Plat. Pro EQ
P.A.: QSC TM 16, K8.2, Bose L1
