This amazing-sounding Martin Custom Shop OM-28 was a TME creation back in 2012, when we thought to ourselves, "Wonder what it would sound like if Martin made an OM-28 Authentic?" Back then, you couldn't apply Authentic bracing features to a custom, but this guitar is built with hide glue and a T-bar in the neck. And frankly, it sounds better than some OM-28 Authentic models that have come through the shop.
The original owner has babied it, and it remains in excellent overall condition (there are a couple minor stringwinder impressions on the side of the peghead--please see photos for close ups). Looking for a standout-level great Madagascar Rosewood Martin OM? This one's as close to a slam dunk as we can recommend. Priced with original hard case.
