Comments about Martin Authentic Series 1931 OM-28 VTS Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar:
This guitar is a pleasure to play. I have had many high end acoustic guitars over the years all kinds of brands .This one does it all fingerstyle and flatpicking ! A beautiful huge sound ! WOW !
Service and delivery comments:
The delivery was prompt and carefully planned , so it didn't sit over a week-end in a warehouse somewhere. The guitar came safe and sound and ready to play all set up to use !
