A real dream guitar and lovely piece of history is this beautiful Martin OM-28 from 1931 – very balanced and with a warm and clear vintage voice!
It has all the desired pre-war features: scalloped bracing, heringbone binding, snow flake fretboard inlays … the “holy grail” acoustic guitars, to say the least!
We are proud that we’ve landed this beautiful Martin OM-28 that comes to us from all the way back in 1931. Rosewood of a quality to make a builder cry today, Adirondack Spruce top that’s yellowed to perfection, and honest play wear to prove this OM-28 hasn’t been wasting away the decades under the bed. Lightweight and agile, the neck is smooth to the touch like an old, Mahogany banister, and it plays as easily.
What can we say about the sound? … this really is the holy grail. We’ve never heard anything quite like it. Big, open, very proud … just an incredibly good sounding guitar. These guitars are also legendary for their dynamic, projection and sustain. This guitar is a prime example of that.
It is in great condition for the age, but has received quite some restoration work too. Some cracks have been repaired. The bridge and the banjo tuners are newer ones. The finish has been professionally oversprayed. The guitar has also received a neck reset and a refret. It plays like butter.
It comes with a high end, but newer guitar case.
This is the real vintage deal for a OM-28 that’s seen miles of action, and is ready for a whole lot more.
