Martin OM-18 Authentic 1933 VTS Used (2015)

Mint condition 2015 Martin OM-18 Authentic 1933 with original case.

Based on an original 1933 OM-18, this Authentic model is constructed the old way – with hide glue, throughout, and historically-accurate detailing confirmed by using a CAT scan machine located at the Smithsonian Institute. Constructed with a genuine mahogany back and sides and an Adirondack Spruce VTS top and authentic circa 1933 bracing pattern. Featuring period-correct “OM-18” Authentic-style appointments, right down to the Authentic 1933 neck barrel and heel. Martin’s new Vintage Tone System (VTS) is employed for the top and braces.

The Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.

Includes original Harptone deluxe hardshell case.

Free shipping in the continental United States.
