Martin released a limited edition of 76 OMC-28 guitars in 1990 - as part of their guitars of the month series. These were OM-28 style but with a rounded cutaway and oval sound hole. Martin announced this model as follows (in 1990):
"The original OM-28 Martin guitars were offered between 1929 and 1933. Because of their crisp delicate tone and heir slightly wider necks these instruments have been highly prized by finger-style guitarist. The OM "Orchestra Model" style is really a 14-fret version of the 000 size with a long 25.4" scale. The idea was suggested to C.F. Martin by Mr Perry Bechtel, a prominent banjo and guitar player of the 1920s and 1930s. Martin is offering the OM-28 as a 1990 guitar of the month, this time in a cutaway version, hence the designation "OMC-28".
Everything about the OMC-28 is unique, starting with the C.F. Martin & Co. logo painstakingly scroll cut from mother of peal and inlaid into a polished rosewood headstock veneer. The solid ebony fingerboard is inlaid with the M-38 pearl position marker pattern with an extra marker at the 19th fret. A low profile neck enables easy playability, while the 1.75" neck width (slightly wider than standard) makes this instrument a delight for the finger-style player. Ageing toner on the solid spruce top serves to remove the "new look" while high performance, 0.25", scalloped top bracing contributes to that distinctive Martin tonal quality.
Other details include the zig-zag back-strip (a feature usually reserved for herring-bone models), gold-plated Schaller tuning buttons, a tortoise color pick-guard and matching "red-eye" bridge pins. This elegant instrument is a great guitar for the finger-picker.
