You are looking at a Martin OM-18 Authentic 1933 Acoustic Guitar, serial number 1950867. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

All of the Martin Authentics are crafted in the same manner as the originals utilizing hide glue throughout and employing historically-accurate detailing thanks to the CAT scan machine at the Smithsonian Institute. This one in particular is based off of an actual vintage 1933 OM-18, and is graced with era-correct OM-18 Authentic-style appointments, down to the Authentic 1933 neck barrel and heel. Martin's exclusive Vintage Tone System (VTS) brings this OM to all new levels of vintage accuracy, with the top and braces aged to target the specific time period. This allows the OM-18 Authentic 1933 to produce that truly outstanding sound that you'd normally only expect from an actual vintage Martin.

The OM-18 Authentic 1933 Acoustic features a 000-14 Fret body crafted from a classic tonewood combination, solid VTS-treated Adirondack spruce with authentic 1933 VTS bracing and solid genuine mahogany back and sides to produce that coveted voice reminiscent of the original. The vintage-style finish is the icing on the cake, further catering to the OM-18 Authentic 1933's old school Martin vibe. The neck is carved from solid genuine mahogany into a period-correct profile and houses a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with Old Style 18 abalone inlays. The premium PLEK setup gives this timeless instrument superb playability that will satisfy even the most discerning players.

Other classic appointments include a set of nickel open-geared tuning machines with butterbean knobs, a bone nut, an ebony Authentic Belly bridge with a long glued-in bone saddle, black binding, multi-stripe inlays & rosette, a Madagascar rosewood headplate with an period-correct script Authentic 1933 logo, and more.

One aspect that truly stands out on OM-18 Authentic 1933 is its visual simplicity. The OM-18 doesn't beat around the bush with appointments that are overly extravagant, it gets straight to the point by doing what this guitar was made to do--and that is to deliver that genuine Martin tone and feel that guitarists have grown incredibly fond of over the years.

For superior protection, the OM-18 Authentic 1933 Acoustic Guitar comes delivered inside hardshell case.
