Here 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!

(Discontinued) 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!

(Discontinued) Martin D28 Marquis Madagascar

The Marquis line from Martin guitars provides players with a vintage aesthetic and great tone shaping features. The grain patterns and red color hues on the back had me in awe upon first look and then came the tone!

Martin OM-45 Marquis (No Longer Available)

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.”
