Martin OM-28 Authentic 1931 Acoustic

The OM-28 Authentic 1931 shares Martin's incredibly significant 14-fret neck Orchestra model innovation with its lengthened 25.4" scale and 1" neck width. Madagascar rosewood back and sides and Adirondack spruce with Martin's new Vintage Tone System (VTS) are used to replicate the aged appearance and tonality of the 1931 original. All other appointments and processes, including hide glue construction, hand-shaping and assembly, and tucked under bridge plate and bracing, are completely faithful.

This is based on a rare 1931 OM-28 model originally owned by Mike Seeger. The specifications have been closely followed with the following exceptions: Madagascar rosewood replaces the rarer Brazilian rosewood, vintage gloss finish and torrefied Adirondack spruce top and braces - Martin's Vintage Tone System (VTS) - used to replicate the aged appearance and tonality of the 1931 original.

The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin's craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.

Features:

- Solid Adirondack Spruce Top with Martin's new Vintage Tone System used to replicate the aged appearance and tonality of the 1931 original
- OM-28 Authentic 1931 Top Bracing Pattern
- Madagascar rosewood back and sides
- Genuine Mahogany Neck
- Solid Black Ebony Fingerboard
