Description

Just in on trade! This almost-new Martin OM-18 Authentic features Mahogany back & sides, a torrefied (VTS) Adirondack Spruce top, ebony bridge & fingerboard, and full hide glue construction. 1 3/4" nut width, 25.4" SL, 2 5/16" string spacing. It's a very lightweight, very resonant guitar, with a beautiful, warm voice and the punchiness you'd expect from an OM relative to a 000. Overall condition is virtually unplayed, with not a mark on it. Priced with its original hard case -- a great buy for anyone in the market for a Mahogany OM!
