Freshly set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech, this lovely Martin OM-18 Authentic 1933 is dialed in and playing its best. Everything about this guitar shouts quality and craftsmanship. Made by hand in Martin's custom shop, with hand-shaped braces and hand-cut neck pocket, this guitar is the real deal.
We have a thing about Shade Top Martins, and if you share that passion, this is your guitar. Wonderful tone. Beautiful looks. And a throw back to the pre-war days of Martin when every guitar was a hand-crafted masterpiece. Yours for the taking at a price that's a fraction of what the original would cost. Give us a call if you have questions or would like an in-hand description. But don't wait too long or this amazing guitar may be gone.
The Authentic Series. The Golden Era is back: those years between the late 1920s and 1942 when a perfect storm of innovation, materials, and craftsmanship at Martin produced some of the world’s finest, most sought-after guitars that sound better as they age. The Authentic Series are new instruments constructed to be faithful looking and sounding reproductions of history-making, pre-war models like the D-45, D-18, and 00-17.
They’re built using traditional hide glue, pocketed hand-shaped bracing, and other timeless techniques in the Martin Custom Shop. Our Vintage Tone System ages the wood to accurately replicate the tone and look of Martin’s coveted pre-war guitars. The Authentic Series: new guitars designed to take you back in time.
