  • Martin Retro Series?

    Has anyone had the chance to play a Retro series Martin? Basically, vintage style Martins with Fishman Auras to replicate the sound of the actual vintage guitar mic'd with various high end/desirable microphones. Sounds like a great idea but nobody in a store in Houston seems to have heard of them. Very Curious.
    What if you scare yourself half to death twice?

    Somebody posted a martin video about them a few months back. Very interesting video. Do a search. I myself have never played one.

        I played one of the Retro OM-28's at the Martin Owners Club event at the factory in August. Unfortunately there was no way to evaluate it because I was outside under a tent in 90 degree heat and high humidity with a din of people trying out other guitars all around me.



        I suppose it's an interesting concept, and the one I played was beautifully built out of top quality materials, but I'd rather put that money toward a real vintage Martin.
