C. F. Martin M-36 Steel String Guitar


Instrument Categories: ,

The Martin M-36 uses the fairly new ‘M Body’ design, which using Martin’s ‘O’ sizing is an OOOO, or quadruple O size. Outside of the D Dreadnought and J Jumbo models, this is the largest body Martin uses and it provides a full, even tone with lots of volume.

This M-36 is part of Martin’s Standard Series ‘Reimagined’ line, introduced at the NAMM show in January 2018.

This Reimagining is described as “the most significant update to the company’s flagship line of guitars in its 185-year history….

The most notable updates to the line include the addition of a modern high-performance neck that is thinner and more comfortable for the player and vintage appointments, including aging toner and open gear tuners. There have been changes to internal features, as well, that include scalloped and forward-shifted top bracing, depending on the style.”

Here’s Martin describing the new 2018 M-36:

“Unique, versatile, and powerful.
A three-piece back, bound neck, and body that’s wide like a jumbo and thin like a 000, for a sound as distinctive as those who play it. East Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce work with scalloped bracing to produce a tone that’s big, balanced and ideal for studio recordings. Enclosed gear tuners and a modified low oval neck with narrow taper offer superb playability.”

This is a new instrument, freshly arrived in our shop. It’s in new condition and comes with the full Martin warranty which applies to the original purchaser, so be sure to register with Martin. The original Martin case is included.
