An outstanding blend of classic and contemporary, the OM-21 has all the quality, tone and looks you've come to expect from C.F. Martin with the added playability and comfort of a modern, high-performance neck carve. Delivering a big sound despite its smaller '000' body, the OM-21 boasts a solid Sitka spruce soundboard that's married to sonically rich, full-sounding solid East Indian rosewood back & sides. For impressive projection and volume, the top is supported standard "X" bracing that utilizes smaller solid Sitka spruce 1/4" braces, which allow the top to vibrate more freely. With a gorgeous, deep low-end and a nice top-end shimmer, the OM-21 is capable of anything from elegant fingerstyle arrangements to lush chords. The top, back & sides are all dressed in a full gloss finish while the top is treated with aging toner to provide a gracefully aged aesthetic. The select hardwood neck is carved into the Modified Low Oval profile and features Martin's ergonomic Performing Artist taper to provide a more comfortable, modern feel. The neck is also a bit wider, which will allow fingerstyle players to feel right at home. For a classic Martin vibe, the OM-21 bears a Style 28 rosette, a Style 18 back purfling, tortoise-colored binding, Style 28 fingerboard inlays and a delmar tortoise color pickguard. Other premium features include a bone nut, a 16" radius compensated bone saddle and a set of nickel open-geared tuning machines with butterbean knobs. The Martin OM-21 Acoustic Guitar comes delivered inside of a hardshell case.

    Great action on the FretBoard. Easy to get consistant / full / quality sounds. I Had to store it for a few months multiple times and just put it away to find it was perfectiy in tune and sounded amazing when I finally got to play it again. it's built so well I know my son or grandson will get the same joy I do and did get out of it~~~

      Comments about Martin OM-21 Acoustic Guitar:

      I wanted a guitar that fulfilled the following criteria:

      - Solid Tonewoods
      - No Composite Materials (Fretboard, Bridge, Nut, Saddle)
      - No Electronics
      - Heirloom

      The OM-21 came to the top of the list and was a great decision. The tone is fantastic, I play for hours on end and can't wait to pass this instrument off to my grandkids.
