The 2018 Martin OM-28 combines many vintage elements with modern manufacturing techniques giving you the best playing, best sounding guitars Martin could possibly build! The OM-28, revamped for 2018 has player conscious specs lending itself to just about any one looking for a gorgeous sounding OM with Rosewood back and sides.
Wood choice is everything in acoustic guitars and the pair of Sitka Spruce and Indian rosewood has long been the benchmark of tone. The woods for this guitar are the crucial ingredient to get that great Martin Tone. This OM has a rich, warm sound without being box or squared off. The scalloped braces allow for extra volume with obvious added treble and bass response. Seldom do people hear a scalloped guitar next to an un-scalloped and NOT choose the scalloped. And we get it! That extra volume, that extra tone is what many of us players are hunting for.
The neck made from select hardwood. Most like mahogany but could be Sapele, and an equally toneful wood with less of a price tag for the time being. The neck is topped with an Ebony fingerboard. The Blackness of the board offers great contrast to the aging toner applied to the body. The neck is carved to the Modified Low Oval neck that everybody seems to love these days. The High Performance Neck Taper keeps the neck at a more uniform thickness as you climb the frets. This neck is very easy to play for long hours.
