What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

This Martin OM was built using tonewoods that are not currently endangered and were responsibly harvested and sounds great if you want a warm, woody tone in a comfortable OM size. Rather than Mahogany we've got Cherry on the back and sides which still gives you a warm and fundamental tone, but it is a bit less bass focused and sweeter sounding. The look of this instrument is very nice as well, and the cherry looks beautiful next to the faux tortoise binding if you want a classy look without being over the top. If you want a sustainably crafted instrument or are trying to get a wonderful dry sound out of an OM that'll sound a bit different to your listeners then check out this Martin SWOMGT!

Manufacturer's Description from Martin

About Manufacturer

For well over a century and a half, The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world. The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.?s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker?s craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power. Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially evident today at Martin?s expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The story behind one of America?s most famous guitars began on January 31, 1796, in Markneukirchen, Germany, with the birth of Christian Frederick Martin, Sr. Born into a long line of cabinet makers, Christian Frederick took up the family craft at the early age of 15, when he left his hometown and traveled to Vienna to apprentice with Johann Stauffer, a renowned guitar maker.
