The Martin 00-28VS is modeled after its original version, built in 1898. The parlor-style guitar features a smaller "00"-style body and a shorter 24.9" scale. The end result is incredibly balanced, warm tones. Particularly favored for its string-to-string response, the Martin 00-28VS is a great guitar suiting any style, especially flat-pick playing. There isn't much that the 00-28VS doesn't have. Its got a solid bass response with clear trebles; it's comfortable; it's easy to play. All around, it's an excellent guitar.
