Description

If your billfold can’t stomach a prewar OM-28, try this 2015 OM-28 Authentic 1931 on for size—built spec-for-spec after the quintessential version. Here with Madagascar Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce, scalloped bracing, and a forward-shifted X, the OM-28 Authentic is a testament to the classic Martin sound we’ve all grown up on. This one’s got the playability of a new guitar and the voice of a much older beast: focused trebles, a clear and open middle register, consistent sustain and balance.
This particular example has been well-cared for, with hardly a mark to be found. The guitar feels lightweight and responsive in your hands, be it fingerpicked or strummed. This Martin OM-28 Authentic is a powerhouse, plain and simple.

Martin’s VTS specifications really seem to work on this guitar. The top is torrefied so it's nice and alive. This guitar is strong, when I first played I thought it was a larger body. Perfect for blues and fingerstyle, but also happy to be strummed because of its big voice.
