Comments about Martin Standard Series OM-28 Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar:
This is a great guitar. The craftsmanship is superb. The sound is amazing. It rings like a dream. Playing it makes you appreciate Martin's experience over the years perfecting the guitar design, specs, manufacturing, materials, etc. I always thought the details are tonewood selection/combination is overrated until I played one. Simply amazing, from the tone, the sound, the playability, the feel, the quality, craftsmanship, and most importantly the way it makes you feel as a musician. Feel the guitar and it's long history of learning and perfecting the instrument, collaborating with many great musicians. We only live once. Own one when you can and learn what Martin Pride is all about. What a marvelous guitar, marvelous experience, marvelous feeling to play one.
