What We Think
Welcome to the sigma modern series, modern I hear you ask… Well what’s new?
Straight out of the box and you can see the headstock is a different shape than the design of old and the logo has changed from the traditional” Martin “style lettering to a new angular type font that matches the brands sleek and up to date features, for instance take a look at the pre amp controls, very understated, no fuss.
Much like sigma in being that they make such a wonderfully built instrument for such a wonderful price you really will struggle to find a similar manufacturer out there that pays this much attention to detail and quality at such low prices.
So! The guitar itself is the grand OM design a medium guitar body with all the punch and warmth you would expect from this range, with a bone nut saddle, 14 frets a cutaway for upper fret access, micarta fret board this time with a mahogany neck, but don’t be mistaken this still has all the characteristics of a wooden fret board retaining the look and feel of one as well.
Solid spruce top coupled with the fishman flex pickup, stylish and intuitive design that goes hand in hand with Sigma’s new line up this really is a modern guitar for the traditional and modern players that won’t disappoint either genre.
