Martin OM-18V - Sitka/Mahogany (2004)
This pre-owned Martin OM-18V, built in 2004, is a powerhouse of an OM, with great warmth and projection. It has had a single owner since being built, and has been very well cared for. The set-up is wonderful, with plenty of saddle showing and low, very playable action. There is no obvious fret wear. There are mild scratches front and back which are difficult to photograph and can be seen only in reflection. They do not penetrate through the finish. The sitka top has darkened over time, developing a very nice aged patina. With its 1/4" scalloped bracing and generous string spacing, the OM-18V works very well for fingerstyle playing, and it is a powerful strummer.
