Versatility and Comfort.
Some guitars have a sweet niche. Few credibly occupy all of them.
The OM is the third largest 14 fret body size in the 0/00/000-OM/JOM-GA progression, and differentiates from the 000 by its 25.5” long scale neck.
Our most popular body size – and probably the second-most popular acoustic guitar worldwide – it’s no coincidence that the “Orchestra Model” appeals equally to fingerstyle players and flatpickers, thanks to its unparalleled combination of balance, presence, power and comfortable playability. It wasn’t always that way. Once relegated to the history books, the OM began a slow resurgence in the mid 1980s after Schoenberg Guitars, co-founded by Dana, teamed up with C.F. Martin to introduce the first production-made OM since the 1930s.
Available with our OM-innovative Large Soundhole option for increased flatpicking performance, and with cutaway and arm bevel options for additional playability and comfort.
