The Martin OM-21 Acoustic Guitar offers top-notch, hand-built craftsmanship. Based on time-tested luthier approaches, coupled with new technological breakthroughs the result is a Martin guitar of premiere construction and design. The OM-21 is built on the OM platform, a guitar body style that presents strong lower midranges and versatile dynamics. With a smaller length, depth and waist than the standard dreadnought body type, Martin's OM-21 guitar is becoming more popular in the acoustic and fingerstyle realm.
The OM-21 guitar boasts a rosewood body, offering warm, rich tone. The Sitka spruce top continues this quality with great balance between the bass, midrange, and treble. The dovetail neck joint keeps the traditional binding methods intact, while the Rosewood fretboard and bridge bring out tremendously clear sustain. A low-profile neck shape, offers comfort and accessibility when dancing across the fretbard's 20 frets. Gotoh tuners offer precise tuning and keep the OM-21 in key consistently and accurately. Dressed with chrome hardware and covered in a nitro finish, the OM-21 acoustic guitar will become an instant favorite. Martin includes a case with the OM-21.
Since 1833, C. F. Martin & Co. has been a permanent part of the American experience, and is heralded as one of the oldest, most respected, most innovative guitar companies in American history. Blending hand craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology, Martin guitars remain unsurpassed in quality, tone, playability and enduring value.
At the same time, Martin still brings a great deal of hand craftsmanship to every step of the building process. Today's Martin guitars are a unique product of the latest technology and the human touch, which is how it has always been. Even our founder, C. F. Martin, Sr., continually sought ways to build more and better guitars to meet the needs of his customers. In an age of change and intense competition, C. F. Martin remains America's leading guitar builder for a very basic reason: They're still in tune with what players want and the quality they expect.
