C. F. Martin OM-35 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2006

C. F. Martin OM-35 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2006

The C. F. Martin OM-35  was built between 2003 and 2007, drawing from the excellent tonal results of the OM design and adding ’35’ level features. While the OM-35 itself is discontinued, it is now available with a standard pickup as the OM-35E. The Martin OM is itself based on the OOO or ‘Triple O’ body design, but adds a longer scale length neck – 25.4 inches instead of the Triple O’s 24.9 inches. This increases the string tension, making the top work a bit harder to deliver a bit more volume and clarity.

❌SOLD❌  Anthony Karol Orchestra Model OM Rosewood, 2016

Built at his workshop in Mississauga, Ontario, the Anthony Karol Orchestra Model is a fine example of skill and meticulous craft work. The Orchestra Model design is based closely on the classic 000 body size, but normally has a longer scale length. Karol makes the body slightly wider and rounds the shoulders for slightly increased bass output, with the goal of a more even response across the spectrum.

❌SOLD❌ Larrivee OM-60 SH Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Larrivee OM-60 SH Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar, 2005

This example of the Larrivee OM-60 SH dates to January 14, 2005 and was built at the Larrivee shop in Oxnard, California. It is in good shape, but it has been used as intended and over the years has required some repairs. There are two repaired and cleated cracks in the top. There is a bit of finish chipping and marking, mostly around the edges. Fret wear is moderate, and mostly in the lower positions. However, it plays very well and sounds great.
