The now discontinued O-28vs is a faithful reproduction of Martin's smallest full-sized acoustic guitars, and a real gem in the world of Parlour Guitars.
Built in East Indian Rosewood for the back and sides coupled with a Sitka Spruce top, the construction and aesthetic is as classic as the tone this gorgeous little instrument puts out.
Given the body size, this O-28 retains a healthy presence in the lows to match the crisp, clear highs and a punchy, warm midrange, with an overall balance and inspiring response across its sonic and dynamic range.
The playability is excellent with the 24.9" Scale and 1 7/8" Nut Width creating an effortless, open platform for most any playing style from finger style folk music through to chiming flat picking.
The guitar is in excellent condition with it's original hardcase.
