    Looks and Sounds Amazing

    Looks and sounds amazing!!! I've always loved the 28 style binding and the fishman pickup sounds incredible. I play through a Fishman Loudbox 180 and I have gotten so many compliments on the sound of this guitar. I took it to my luthier first thing after I bought it and he said that it was set up perfectly and when he strummed it he said "oh yeah, that's what a Martin is supposed to sound like"

    Unrivaled Sound and Playability

    I finally decided to buck up and get a Martin OM-28E Retro. Wow! Simply extraordinary. The action and feel is superb. Playing acoustically the resonance is really powerful and when using the Aura Plus options it's simply glorious. I've been playing mostly Ibanez Artist Series acoustics for nearly all my life which are great guitars in their own right (my aunt worked for them for over 35 years) but there's something about that Martin tone and feel that can't be replicated. My sales engineer Kevin Samuel is the best. He got it shipped out super quick (it was delivered to my door within 4 days of placing the order). Thanks Kev!

    One Sweet Guitar

    Well, I've had this guitar for nearly 4 months now and I have to say that every time I pick it up and play it I love it more. It has become my favorite. For acoustics, I currently own a '97 Guild D-55 (R.I.), an '01 Gibson J185 (Montana), and an '02 Taylor 614ce. They are all great guitars, but this Martin makes me want to play! I have owned other high end guitars such as a Huss & Dalton & Dana Bourgeois, and they were great too, but for the money I have to say that this Martin is every bit as nice. It's sound is well balanced and the notes are clear; this guitar has soul... I am very happy that I purchased this guitar and it has given me the desire to spend more time playing. As far as doing business with Sweetwater, I have to say that it was an excellent experience and I wouldn't hesitate to buy again. Their customer service is truly exceptional.

    Absolutely worth it. Get one if you can!

    My Sweetwater salesperson helped me out a lot with this one. It shipped very well protected. Martin absolutely did an amazing job with this guitar. It's so bright yet very warm. Don't be afraid to strum on this guitar. Finger picking is a no-brainer. The F1 Aura+ system is a great system to have on hand (very easy to use). Built-in tuner is so welcome. The build quality is just soooo....I don't know what to say anymore. Buy one if you can, or finance it just make sure you're ready for an experience.

    I love this guitar!

    After 52 years of playing I decided to spring for a higher end Martin and my timing was perfect. Martin had just introduced the retro series with the new Aura Plus. This guitar has the tonal qualities I have sought for years but couldn't find. I don't think I'll buy any more guitars at this point because I have the consummate instrument now and can just ride off into the sunset. Buy this guitar if you can afford it and you won't be sorry.
