Martin 00-28VS

Today we’re featuring the recent reissue of the Martin 00-28VS. Believe it or not, this model was initially introduced in 1898 … and at that time was the largest guitar they produced! Of course today this little 14″ parlor style guitar is sought after for its exceptionally even string-to-string response with a fundamental-rich warm overall tonality!

Martin OM-21 Special

I think that every time I walked by the Martin booth at this year’s NAMM music trade show, there was a large crowd around the Martin OM-21 Special! It really did make quite an impression with a LOT of dealers and it’s not surpising considering the features … bone nut & saddle, Gotoh butterbeans with pewter finish, crisply executed ebony pyramid bridge, wide fingerstyle-friendly string spacing on a low profile neck, retro looking rosewood binding and a premium tortoiseshell pickguard on the vintage toner Sitka top!

Martin OM-45 Marquis

Martin OM-45 Marquis

According to C. F. Martin III, the 14-fret neck was developed in late 1929. Prior to the period, guitars were generally equipped with a 12-fret neck. As the story goes, a renowned plectrum banjoist of the day, Perry Bechtel, suggested to Frank Henry Martin that he make a guitar with a 14-fret neck. Bechtel reasoned that the longer neck would increase the guitar’s range and make it a more versatile instrument. Following Bechtel’s advice, Martin introduced a guitar with the longer neck and dubbed it an “Orchestra Model.”
