Martin OM-28 Authentic VTS 1931 Preowned 2015


1 Only In Stock

Based on a rare acoustic guitar originally owned by Mike Seeger, the sadly discontinued Martin OM-28 Authentic 1931 is a truly exceptional instrument. Built from Madagascar rosewood and topped with torrefied Adirondack spruce, giving you a rich, powerful sound full of overtones and depth, accented by a crisp, clear tone with high headroom and strong fundamental content. Treated with Martin's Vintage Tone System (VTS), it faithfully evokes the aged appearance and tonality of the 1931 original.

This 2015 model lives up to all expectations - warm, woody, deep, dynamic and exceptional in every way. It's got a surprising amount of headroom, and really rewards a light touch. The neck feels comfortable and familiar in the hand, and it's incredibly responsive. 

It's in great condition for it's age, with barely any playwear or scratches. The binding is starting to pull away at the waist on the back of the instrument (a common issue for Martins of this era), but it's something that can be easily addressed by a good repair person. Includes original Martin hardshell case.
