This Martin Guitars OM-18 Authentic 1933 is a superb picker and high-quality Martin constructed using pre-war technique offering sound, dynamics and vibe that is hard to match.
This OM-18 Authentic 1933 was build in 2012 and is exceptionally light (1.58 kg). She has a big voice, with that famous OM projection so that the lightest playing produced enormous amounts of tone. With Genuine Mahogany for the back and sides and an Adirondack Red Spruce top, this beauty sounds clear and full at the same time. You can hear the age of the guitar reflecting in the tone since the Adirondack has really matured and opened up. She can be played at full throttle without wigging out, it just gets louder and more powerful. The detailed reproduction of this classic OM model came to life after a great deal of research to find suitable tonewood. Also, a lot of attention to detail has gone into these reproductions. Martin succeeded in resurrecting these pre-war guitars down to the last detail.
The OM-18 Authentic 1933 is a guitar that takes you back to the time of the originals. She will not only inspire the vintage purist but also the guitar player who wants to revive a special time in history and guarantees pure joy of playing and sets standards in every respect. This guitar is in excellent technical condition. Very minor fret wear, some dings on the top and a repaired binding on the backside and end piece. Thus, her condition is rated as VERY GOOD. She travels in the nice and original Martin 533V Harptone case.
