Martin Standard Series Acoustic Guitars


collapse expand iconDescription

This premium instrument from Martin's Standard Series combines superior tonewoods and construction with Fishman's innovative Aura VT Enhanced electronics to deliver an unparalleled acoustic experience for the stage and studio. The smaller orchestra model body provides a balanced, versatile tone suited to any musical style.

Select Tonewoods and Bracing Produce Rich, Nuanced Tone

The OM-28E features an East Indian rosewood back and sides paired with a premium solid Sitka spruce top, chosen for their tonal qualities and ability to produce a wide range of dynamics and overtones. Martin's signature scalloped X-bracing and dovetail neck joint optimize resonance and projection. The result is a rich, complex tone with bell-like highs, a focused midrange, and tight, articulate bass.

Modified Low Oval Neck Profile Enhances Playability

The OM-28E sports a modified low oval neck profile with High Performance Taper for superior playability and comfort. The slimmer nut width and flatter fretboard radius are tailored for effortless fretting and smooth playability up and down the neck. The bone nut and saddle provide maximum tone transfer to complement the guitar's premium tonewood construction.

Revolutionary Fishman Electronics Capture Natural Tone

The built-in Fishman Aura VT Enhanced electronics faithfully capture the OM-28E's acoustic properties and tone for a transparent amplified sound. The under-saddle pickup is blended with the guitar's natural resonance, allowing you to adjust the mix to your preferences. On-board controls for volume, EQ, and body blend provide tonal shaping to suit any musical scenario.

Premium Appointments and Legendary Craftsmanship

Classic herringbone binding, butterbean knobs, and an aged toner finish adorn the OM-28E, highlighting its premium build and appointments. As with all Martin guitars, the OM-28E is handcrafted using time-honored techniques passed down through generations of skilled luthiers. This fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern innovation has produced an acoustic-electric guitar destined to become an heirloom instrument.
