The Martin OM-28E is truly a modern take on a classic Pre-War guitar with a modern pickup system and well-shaped modern neck. No compromise is made on true Martin tone!
This exquisite Martin OM-28E comes with scalloped bracing, impeccable balance and Martin’s superb Modified Low Oval with High Performance Taper neck. This neck has a fast feel, perfect for chording up and down the neck, or taking a solo in a live application. A very well-thought-out design by Martin. The longer scale provides a bit more tension under the pick hand, great for harder strumming and projection.
She has the traditional Martin OM-28E voice featuring Indian Rosewood back & sides with a nice Sitka Spruce top. Scooped mids, clear and round bass response, and a bright sparkle to the top end. The cutaway does not dampen or affect tone negatively. The longer scale length (645 mm) and larger 000 body shape equal volume and sustain. The Fishman Aura VT Enhance pick-up system make amplifying this beauty a no-brainer for live or studio applications. This system delivers clarity of tone with on board controls, so you can shape your sound anywhere, anytime to sound as good plugged in as you do unplugged. Martin & Fishman have been working together for more than 30 years and have developed a unique take on how to amplify Martin guitars.
