Description

Pre-owned Martin OM-28 Authentic 1931 model just into the shop for consignment. This guitar features Martin's VTS torrefied Adirondack Spruce top and bracing, and it's one of the best sounding instruments in the store (sometimes your strongest bet for who's making the most old-Martin-sounding guitars should still be Martin). Exceptional bass response for an OM, and a lovely dry snap across the midrange (especially when wearing D'addario NB strings). Overall condition is near-mint, with no significant wear of any kind. Priced with its original 533V Harptone case. Serial no.1951923.

On consignment. Video sample reflects a previously sold guitar with identical specs.
