Martin introduced the OM or “Orchestra Model” designation in the late 1920s – the intention was that these guitars would replace banjos in jazz orchestras. These instruments generally have necks that join the body at the twelfth fret, and have a smaller body with a tighter waist than Dreadnought size models.
