Inspired by late-1800s movement with period-correct tonewood choices and limited to 100 instruments.
The OM-18 Arts & Crafts Orchestra acoustic guitar is the third instrument from Martin that pays homage to the Arts & Crafts design movement that dates back to the late 1800s and often presents in the form of romantic-, folk- or medieval-style decoration. The movement was thought to be anti-industrial and advocated for economic and social reform. This ornate orchestra model features Arts & Crafts-inspired pearl inlay designs throughout, paired with German white oak back and sides and an Adirondack spruce top with a Guatemalan rosewood headplate, fingerboard and bridge. The tonewoods for this guitar were selected for their significance in the movement because they were used by craftspersons and designers as alternatives to traditional industrial materials and excel tonally in the voice of the guitar. The OM-18 Arts & Crafts Orchestra includes a comfortable high-performance neck, a Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, and vintage copper open gear tuners. This model is limited to 100 instruments and includes an engraved plate label signed by Chris Martin IV.
Hardshell case included.
