Title: scalloped braces
Post by: markanthony on September 12, 2006, 11:24:52 PM
hello friends I am very close to pulling the trigger on one of two martins.They are almost the same guitar,but one has scalloped braces.Would there really be much of a differance in volume or tone if everything else was the same just different braces?

Don't pull the trigger yet.  What martin is it?  Are they both new?  Was it scalloped at the factory?

Personally, I'd get the 00028h scalloped one.  If it's the same price.  (if it was made recently)It will have the black ebony fretboard as oposed to the striped ebony.  It will have more emphasis on the bass as well as being louder(don't know if you want that or not)  Just one opion.
