Now the OM28 is over a thousand more in price, so maybe it is the better quality of the wood used that would garner any advantage in sound.
I don't disagree with what you wrote. However, while the spec sheets Martin releases to the public provide useful information for comparative purposes, they do not tell the whole story. They are basic spec sheets. Maury's point regarding the bracing position of the HD-28 vs. HD-28V is one example of this.
