Sweet Martin OM

Been a Martin player since 1975 - D-35, D-12/18, as well as vintage Martins belonging to a friend. It took 40 years for me to realize that I wanted an OM-sized guitar. My D-35 now gets very little attention, as much as I love it. Its sound, of course, is incomparable. But I love my SWOMGT's sweet sound, and boy does it project. It's light and with the right strings - trust me that Martin MSP7100 SP Lifespan 92/8 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings sound the best and play the easiest - it is pure pleasure to play. I've had it for three years now (I see that the price has gone up about $500 since) and have tried just about every Martin string. Also, I have not had to have the action adjusted and tweaked, as I have had to on both the D-35 and D-12/18. One more thing: the guitar is headstock heavy and likes to slip downward when using a conventional strap. I solved that problem with a wide leather strap with a rough, unfinished side that grips my shoulder. It has a "full," well-developed Martin sound, but with a very light touch on the fingerboard and OM body. You'll love it.

an absolute gem

I went into the music store wanting an 000-28 or some sort of 000. I played at least 20 guitars. Ranging from Martin to Taylor to Gibson. This was the last one I put my hands on. It expands so much off the already great Martin tone. I've never heard anything produce such a sweet tone. Fantastic and while the 2nd best I played was indeed a Martin 000-28 money and tone woods aside the cherry backed swom was out of this world. I believe it will eventually be one of those highly sought after guitars 20-30 years from now. If it cost 4 grand it would be the rave but because it is a bit cheaper it's often overlooked. People don't know what they are missing.

Fantastic sounding guitar in sustainable Cherry wood!

The Martin SWOMGT is hands down a great sounding guitar. It is a warmer sound to my ear than rosewood and is less bright mahogany. I really would recommend to anyone looking to give the sustainable cherry wood a try. It does not have the panache of rosewood but is great sounding and Martin finds beautifully figured pieces for the back. The faux tortise shell is a beautiful accent for the rosette and purfling but also for the bridge and endpins. To sum it up it's a beautiful guitar with great tone and sound.

Thanks "Guitar Whisperer"

After months of research I had narrowed my guitar search down to two models. I decided to come to the Sweetwater showroom to play them both and my sales engineer Tyler Berggren had them set aside and waiting for me when I arrived. I spent some time switching back and forth between the two guitars when a Sweetwater professional (that my wife nicknamed the "Guitar Whisperer") came in and watched me play. After watching and listening for a few minutes he began to ask me questions about what I liked about each guitar. Then he started having different guitars brought from the warehouse - I must have played six more that were not on my original list. When I was handed the SWOMGT, I knew immediately it was the perfect guitar for me. I asked the Guitar Whisperer how he knew I'd like this guitar and he said he could just tell. Thanks Sweetwater and the Guitar Whisperer!

Martin SWOMGT is a winner!

I currently own 5 acoustic guitars and play them all regularly. When I received my Martin from Sweetwater...it was delivered in perfect shape. The guitar is a work of art and sounds amazing. It was perfectly set up and feels like I have been playing it for years in my hands. It's effortless!. It's hard to describe the sound...it's bright yet mellow. Every time I play it, I find it hard to put it down. This is in my opinion the most guitar you can get for the money in the Martin line. Get one...you won't be disappointed.

Martin SWOMGT Acoustic Guitar

But fingerstyle is what this beastie is meant for. I know that you can't hear how comfortable this guitar is to play, or how nice it is to have that wide fretboard and string spacing, or how sweetly the guitar snuggles into your arms like it was meant to be there - but that's the OM thing, and this baby's got it. ...
