Will Fly Is it still an old Martin? (53* d) RE: Is it still an old Martin? 20 Oct 18


I recently owned a Martin OMCP electric acoustic - mid-jumbo cutaway. These retail in the UK new at around 1,700. Got mine second-hand online from a local store. The best way to describe it was competent - sapele back & sides, spruce top, plastic nut and saddle, plastic bridge, richlite fretboard. Average acoustic.

I spotted a 22-year old Lowden in a Slough store on Wednesday - drove up and traded in the Martin for it. What a difference. Fantastic sound, clarity, tone and projection.

Just one experience.
