Offering a tasteful mixture of pre-war Martin tradition and modern Martin performance the OM-28E Retro bears a distinct vintage-inspired design with contemporary upgrades such as premium onboard electronics and Martin's comfortable, more modern neck taper. The beautifully matched sides and two-piece solid East Indian rosewood back lay beneath a solid Sitka spruce soundboard that's supported by smaller 1/4" standard "X" scalloped bracing to give you that authentic Martin tone with a nice '000' punch. Catering to the classic Martin look, the top is adorned with a gloss finish with aging toner, a Style 28 rosette, a bold herringbone inlay, and a delmar tortoise color pickguard while the back boasts a traditional HD Zig-Zag purfling along with ivoroid binding. For easy playability, the select hardwood neck is carved into the cozy modified low oval profile and features Martin's ergonomic performing artist taper. Diamond & Squares short pattern inlays grace the ebony fingerboard for an aesthetic that  remains true to its Martin heritage. The headstock carries a rosewood headplate that displays a large old style Martin logo and comes equipped a set of nickel open geared tuners with butterbean knobs. A bone nut is matched by a 1930s style ebony belly bridge with a drop-in 16" radius compensated bone saddle. Fitted with high-quality Fishman F1 Aura Plus electronics, the OM-28E Retro will produce that legendary Martin sound whether you're plugged-in or unplugged. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
