2011 Martin OM-28V Lefty

Serial # 1543381. Whether it's fingersytle or flatpicking, strumming or plucking, the OM-28V has got you covered; there's nothing that this guitar doesn't do well. It's loud and present, rumbly and open, balanced and strong; and it has just the right mix of fundamental and overtone in its voice.

A very comfortable guitar to play and hold, the OM-28V's 15" wide 000 size body is married to a modified V carved neck with 1-3/4" nutwidth. Bridge pin spacing is 2-1/4", which affords a little extra room to move. The guitar plays smoothly and easily.

Factory left-handed, Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top; herringbone purflings, zig-zag back strip, and ivoroid bindings. Scalloped bracing, ebony bridge and fingerboard, vintage style inlays, logo, and tuners. Bone nut and thru-style saddle, gloss lacquer finish with aging toned top, polished beveled-edge pickguard.

The guitar is in nearly-new condition, and shows no finishwear. The frets show just the slightest wear in the first position. Set-up was done by us, and the guitar plays beautifully with a fingerstyle action.

With original hardshell case
