2015 Martin OM-28 Authentic 1931 Guitar

Photo for Ad 134987

(Serial No. 1930026) Mint unplayed condition. Straight grained Madagascar rosewood back and sides with master grade Adirondak red spruce top. The OM-28 Authentic 1931 has the Martin 14-fret neck Orchestra model innovation with its lengthened 25.4 inch scale and 1 3/4 inch neck width. Madagascar rosewood back and sides and Adirondack spruce with the new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) are used to replicate the aged appearance and tonality of the 1931 original. All other appointments and processes, including hide glue construction, open back Waverly tuners, hand shaping and assembly, and tucked under bridge plate and bracing, are completely faithful to the original guitars.

The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique process that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS ages the wood which allows Martin to target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin luthiers to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but to also reproduce the tone of a vintage instrument. The sound is powerful, with a clear bass, strong midranges and singing trebles. Plays very easily with a nice low action. Comes with the original Geib style Martin hardshell case.....USD $6000
