Martin Vintage Deluxe Neck vs. Actual Vintage Martin

Martin’s new Vintage Deluxe Profile

A neck shape exclusive to their new Modern Deluxe Series guitars.

It is claimed to be inspired by the neck on the priceless the 1930 OM-45 Deluxe residing in the Martin Museum.

The OM-28 Modern Deluxe is the only MD model thus far to have the traditional fingerboard width to go along with this vintage-esque neck shaping. So how close is it the genuine article?

Well…

The day I first played that old guitar, I begged the people responsible for what gets made at Martin to put that neck on every OM they made thereafter. At the very least, I suggested, they needed to make it available on something less expensive than the $100K Authentic Series model based on that classic museum piece.

And now they have. And there was much rejoicing. “Yea!”
