Martin's original Orchestra model has been one of the most influential acoustic guitar styles in modern music history. From its compact shape and timeless curves to its responsive and even tone, Martin’s orchestra model has been a player’s favourite ever since it’s debut in 1929.
From its bold herringbone inlays to its hand-selected bone nut and saddle, the OM-28 captures the spirit of this classic model and revives all of the small details that make this instrument truly special.
The OM-28 acoustic guitar also features a new neck carve which lies somewhere in between the classic feel of a modified low oval profile and Martin's slimmer and faster artist series neck profile. This results is one of the most comfortable necks you're likely to find in the market today.
Martin spared no expenses on its tonewoods for this model. A silky sitka spruce top paired with solid East-Indian rosewood gives this guitar a rich and balanced tone filled with harmonics and lush woody overtones.
