The OM-28 acoustic guitar honors one of Martin's most celebrated 14-fret models. Built from Martin's precious supply of East Indian rosewood and married to an extraordinary spruce top, the Martin OM-28's comfortably reduced Orchestra body packs plenty of body, bold bass, and clear, sparkling highs — all balanced to perfection. A black ebony fingerboard and matching bridge complete the picture. This latest OM-28 features Martin's High Performance Taper neck profile for greater comfort and precision, as well as an aged-toner finish and butterbean knobs for an heirloom look. Even for the established collector, there is always room in a collection for the Martin OM-28 acoustic guitar from Music Experience.
There's no question that Martin's original Orchestra model has been one of the most influential acoustic guitar styles in modern music history. From its bold herringbone inlays to its hand-selected bone nut and saddle, the Martin OM-28 does more than merely capture the spirit of the original. When you pick up the Martin OM-28, it's like stepping back in guitar history.
You just can't beat the sound of solid spruce and solid genuine rosewood. For such an affordable guitar, the Martin OM-28 spares no expense on its tonewoods. You'll love the crisp sound of the OM-28's solid East-Indian rosewood back and sides, and they look fantastic. What's more, the Martin OM-28 is topped with solid spruce, adding rich and mellow overtones. Take it from the Music Experience crew — the Martin OM-28 delivers the tone and playability you want in an acoustic guitar!
Martin's Modified Low Oval mahogany neck with High Performance Taper delivers a new level of performance in the latest OM28. Technical players will enjoy greater speed and accuracy, while strummers will enjoy greater comfort as the night rolls along.
The Martin OM-28's glued dovetail neck joint maximizes tonal transfer between the body and neck and promises greater stability as the guitar ages. The benefits here are evident the first time you hold the Martin OM-28 in your hands. Chords ring out rich and true, and melodies take on a sweet, woody sound. Meanwhile, Martin's scalloped X-bracing enhances resonance in the 28's lower bout, adding punch and balance to the comfortable Orchestra shape.
Compact and commanding, scalloped bracing brings your sound to life—fingerpicking, strumming or soloing. Perfect balance across all six strings, bold herringbone, East Indian rosewood, ebony, spruce, and vintage appointments give a classic look to a timeless sound.
