Subject: RE: Martin OM28-V Fingerstyle guitar........
Are you considering using alternate tunings on your new guitar? Being a fingerstyle player myself, I have experimented with a lot of alternate tunings. Lowering string tension can drastically effect the tone of your guitar. I have discovered that sometimes a less expensive guitar can outshine a Martin, when you vary the string tension. You might want to "test drive" your selection, in store, using open tunings etc., before you finalize your purchase.

Oh! and check out my alternate tuning chord charts page if you like:
