The Martin Guitar


The finish is just the start

Whether you like the subtle sophistication of the OMC-16E Burst, or the stark contrast of black and white on the 000-17 Black Smoke, 16 & 17 Series guitars will help you stand out on a crowded stage before you play a note.

We love them and would definitely point serious gigging players in their direction for personal perusal. If you are in the market for a quality gigging and recording acoustic guitar, these contemporary workhorses bring a fresh vibe to the USA-made Martin mythos in a way that is altogether inspiring.”
