Description: Martin OM-1EDIT

Introduced in 2009, the Martin OM-1 acoustic guitar is designed to deliver a great quality all solid-wood guitar at an affordable price. The Martin OM-1 acoustic guitar is constructed from solid tonewoods including a Sitka spruce top, bookmatched Sapele back and sides, as well as an East Indian Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The Martin OM-1 acoustic guitar includes Martin’s modified hybrid scalloped top bracing. According to Martin, this guitar is designed “to deliver the best tone at the lowest possible price.” In this case, that means at a minimum advertised price of $899.

More information on all of Martin’s 1-series of guitars can be found at the Martin Guitars website.
