The OM-18E acoustic-electric orchestra model adds a stage ready non-cutaway OM to our Standard Series. It is crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top, genuine mahogany back and sides and solid black ebony fingerboard and bridge. Tortoise color binding and matching pickguard are also featured on this model. Choose between the Fishman® Aura® VT Enhance™ or LR Baggs Anthem electronics for stellar amplification in the studio or on the stage.
The Martin OM-18E acoustic-electric guitar shares the same understated appointments and state-of-the-art Fishman Aura VT Enhance electronics as its Style 18 big siblings, but that's where the family resemblance ends. While a dreadnought is great for flat-picking, the smaller and exceedingly comfortable OM-18E is built for finger-picking and layering. Studio guitarists have long used Martin Orchestra Model guitars to add depth and dimension to a track, and the OM-18E delivers rich tone with clarity and note separation that holds its own in a dense arrangement. The Martin OM-18E is beautifully crafted true to Martin tradition, featuring a solid Sitka spruce top, with mahogany sides and back. Like an old friend, Martin's sleek, Modified Low Oval neck with High Performance Taper welcomes you with silky playability up and down the precision-Plek'd fretboard.
