The Martin OM-28E Modern Deluxe Acoustic Electric Guitar embodies the clarity, projection, subtle tonal properties, and sensitive dynamic range that has long been associated with Martin Orchestra instruments – while also packing it with vintage appointments, custom features and modern technology! A Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction deliver the rich, fully-aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock give it a look to match its sound.

The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and craftswomen to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
Ultra-modern features like Liquidmetal bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate boost volume without adding weight, making this a guitar player’s dream. Adjustable Aura Imaging technology included in new Fishman Aura VT Blend electronics now allows more control over the voice of your guitar than ever before.
The Martin OM-28E Modern Deluxe Acoustic Electric Guitar comes with a hardshell case and is strung with Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 light gauge strings.
