Martin OM-18 Authentic VTS 1933

This New Martin OM-18 Authentic VTS 1933 was built to exact 1933 specs. They took a 1933 OM-18 on loan from Fred Oster (Vintage Instruments) and took it to the Smithsonian Institute and scanned it with a CAT-scanner to get all exact measurement right to the last little detail. Of course it is full hide glue construction, a painstaking job, where you have to heat the glue before applying it. Also the Adirondack top is VTS, actually baked and dried to replicate the sound of a vintage guitar as close as possible. And it is equipped with the vintage style T-bar.Features include selected mahogany back and sides and premium Adirondack spruce for the top, authentic 1933 bracing pattern. The sound of this guitar is overwhelming, impressive, unreal or whatever superlative you want to use for it. Never heard a tone like this in a new Martin OM before.Other prominent features include Authentic 1933 mahogany "Barrel and Heel" neck, "old Style 18" rosette, authentic belly style ebony bridge with long bone, saddle, Waverly Nickel 8060 tuners with butterbean knobs, "old style 18" fingerboard inlay, and a solid black ebony nut and finished in the "1933 Chris Hillman Shaded" burst. Comes with a deluxe Harptone case.

The price includes 21% VAT and the usual- but quite unique 5 year Martin/TFOA warranty.
