The C F Martin Company introduced the world to the Orchestra Model in 1929 and made it for five years, to 1933. In 1934, right after the OM was discontinued, the Martin Company resumed making their famous “000” or Auditorium model that shared the same body dimensions as the OM. Now that 14-fret guitars with long scale necks had been embraced with great enthusiasm by the general public (Martin had sold 487 Brazilian rosewood OM-28 models in those first 5 years) they apparently intended to abandon long scale and revert to the short scale. What happened next is a tale of history irony.
