The Martin OM-21 Acoustic Guitar offers top-notch, hand-built craftsmanship. Based on time-tested luthier approaches, coupled with new technological breakthroughs the result is a Martin guitar of premiere construction and design. The OM-21 is built on the OM platform, a guitar body style that presents strong lower midranges and versatile dynamics. With a smaller length, depth and waist than the standard dreadnought body type, Martin's OM-21 guitar is becoming more popular in the acoustic and fingerstyle realm.

The OM-21 guitar boasts a rosewood body, offering warm, rich tone. The Sitka spruce top continues this quality with great balance between the bass, midrange, and treble. The dovetail neck joint keeps the traditional binding methods intact, while the Rosewood fretboard and bridge bring out tremendously clear sustain. A low-profile neck shape, offers comfort and accessibility when dancing across the fretbard's 20 frets. Gotoh tuners offer precise tuning and keep the OM-21 in key consistently and accurately. Dressed with chrome hardware and covered in a nitro finish, the OM-21 acoustic guitar will become an instant favorite. Martin includes a case with the OM-21.

Since 1833, C. F. Martin & Co. has been a permanent part of the American experience, and is heralded as one of the oldest, most respected, most innovative guitar companies in American history. Blending hand craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology, Martin guitars remain unsurpassed in quality, tone, playability and enduring value.

At the same time, Martin still brings a great deal of hand craftsmanship to every step of the building process. Today's Martin guitars are a unique product of the latest technology and the human touch, which is how it has always been. Even our founder, C. F. Martin, Sr., continually sought ways to build more and better guitars to meet the needs of his customers. In an age of change and intense competition, C. F. Martin remains America's leading guitar builder for a very basic reason: They're still in tune with what players want and the quality they expect.

Best Value in OM Martin Guitar

By AndyC-JYAha

from Austin, TX

Comments about Martin Standard Series OM-21 Acoustic Guitar:

I've owned my OM21 since 1994, a 1994 build. If you like fingerstyle, the 1 3/4 neck width at the nut is ideal. The tone of the rosewood/spruce combination is rich, and subtle. If you need a really loud strummer, I suggest going to a Dreadnought, but the OM can be strummed to medium loudness without issue. With minimal adornment, you have the best of what a Martin can provide, but don't have to pay for the extras. I give this guitar top honors, and is an heirloom quality instrument.

OM 21 New

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Martin Standard Series OM-21 Acoustic Guitar:

After several months of decision making, this was the guitar I chose. I have no regrets. The pure tone and naturally balanced sound is unmatched by many guitars even at a higher price-point. The sound is very flexible from finger style to light to medium strumming. If you need a bass-centered sound or need to cut through a-lot of other instruments however, this isn't the guitar for you.

Great Value!

By jimmy wroten

Comments about Martin Standard Series OM-21 Acoustic Guitar:

Athough I've only owned the guitar for a week or so, it met all of my expectations. No complaints! Would make same purchase again!!
I recently purchased an 0M-21 after several months of debate. I already own a Martin HD-28, D-18, a low end PA series. My son has a 000-28. I initially purchased a 000-18 but returned it because it didn't sound as I expected, although it had a great sound, just different! The 0m-21 sounds and looks great! It is warm with a nice, deep tone and simply keeps on ringing when played. To me it sounds better than my son's 000-28, but it's not quite as pretty because it lacks the 28 style binding, etc... What matters to me is the sound, and it's there! It sounds as good as my HD-28 but not quite as loud and a lot more comfortable to play, as I'm not a large man. That's what I was hoping for and I got it. I absolutely love it!! Having played the 000-21 and the 000-28, I would purchase the 0M-21 again in a heartbeat!
As with any Martin that I have purchased, the quality is there!!

Best Martin Value for the cost

Comments about Martin Standard Series OM-21 Acoustic Guitar:

THE OM21 IS A PERFECT MATCH FOR THE CHANGES MADE TO 2012 D18. I love the 1 3/4 nut width. The 000 body size makes this guitar perfect for song writing but it has the depth and power of dreadnaught. I agree with Dick Boak who works for Martin, he says that the om21 is the best Martin made for the cost.

    Comments about Martin Standard Series OM-21 Acoustic Guitar:

    A few years back I sold my `67 D-35 "Brazilian" after thirty five years and finally having come to grips to grips with the fact I`d never play like Doc Watson. A few years after that "guitar withdrawal" set in and I picked up a new OM 21. What a sweet little guitar, albeit with a sweet big voice. I love this thing!
    The size is perfect and the guitar projects almost as well as the D-35 did.
    I considered the OM-28v as it`s a bit fancier but could detect no difference in the sound and couldn`t justify the added cost.
