Martin OM-18E

Martin’s OM-18E, released at the start of 2018, is one of very few long-scale 000/OM models in the Martin catalogue. The guitar is dressed-up identically to Martin’s very popular 000-18 model, but features a smaller, early OM-style pickguard and is fitted with the Fishman Aura VT Enhance pickup system.

Sitka spruce top with scalloped bracing, mahogany back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, tortoise-plastic binding and pickguard, vintage-style tuners and headstock logo, and gloss lacquer finish with aging toner added for vintage color.

Nut width is 1-3/4”, 25.4” OM scale, 2-5/32” string spread at the bridge.
