2001 Martin OM 28V Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood with IBeam ID-7002
2001 Martin OM 28V
Another great Martin has entered the building... this time a gorgeous 2001 OM-28 V featuring a Sitka Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides. We tend to get in lots of special Martin's and this one is particularly nice sounding with rich tone and a highly responsive top, which gives the guitar a nice sparkle, even when played with a softer fingerstyle attack.
This OM is part of Martin's "28" series with a herringbone top purfle and Indian Rosewood back and sides. Indian Rosewood is a classic backwood known for it's rich bass and reverb-like overtones. When combined with an Sitka Spruce top, sounds very clear and distinct while maintaining the lush low end rosewood is famous for. Even for an OM, the bass is very impressive and notes are round and full even on higher notes up the neck.
Additional appointments include HD Zig Zag back purfling, a bold Herringbone top inlay, and a style 28 rosette. The neck is solid Mahogany, shaped to a modified V profile, and the solid Ebony fingerboard has the Diamonds/Squares short pattern on frets five through nine. Tuners are Nickel Martin Open Geared w/ Butterbean Knobs.
This guitar has some scratches and dents on the top, side, back and neck as seen in the detailed photos. There is minor fretwear on the B and E Strings one frets 1-6 and some light finish scratches and a few marks on the headstock, also photographed. Original Martin hardshell case included.
