chouxfleur Martin Guitars - Too 'Boomy' ?? (60* d) RE: Martin Guitars - Too 'Boomy' ?? 04 Feb 02

I would agree with the last couple of postings. I have a old D-45, and a very old OM-28 herringbone (both 14 fretters), and a D-18S and a 000-15S (both 12 fretters). No doubt about it, the 12 fret guitars win hands down. But while the Dreadnoughts are bass heavy, in no way would I describe them as boomy. The most balanced instrument is the OM-28, whilst the real breath taker-away is the 000-15S. Quite unbelievable tone and volume from a lightweight, plain, guitar that was £650.
