Plywood in a $4,500 guitar...why?

John824, 07.10.2014
I love Martin guitars and have owned a D-18 for years. The smaller body on the OM range tames the sonic boom of the dreadnought to a sweet tone perfect for finger style. The OMJM was my choice because I like the slim neck profile used on this model. How I wish I had looked more closely at the spec on Martin's website before buying it.

Firstly, let me say that the tone and playability of this guitar is faultless, but I have just started building my own guitars and so decided to check out the neck and end block setup to maybe pick up some hints from one of the premier guitar brands. Imagine my shock to find that on this model - and this model only in this price range, apparently - they're made from plywood with a this mahogany plate glued to them to hide the fact.

Now, I know builders are trying to find new, sustainable materials to use in guitar construction, but come on...! Martin do a whole load of cheaper guitars that use solid mahogany for the neck and end blocks so why plywood on this one?

Martin TripleO

Teser, 03.05.2011
After a model of the Orchestra series in every good guitarist's household, I decided to use the Martin OOO Style45. Important were good woods (Sitka spruce top, rosewood for the floor and sides, ebony for the fretboard) and a built-in pickup for an uncomplicated removal of the guitar on the stage.

The Martin OMJM (stands for Orchestra Model John Mayer Signature) meets all these requirements. Best processing, excellent sound and exceptionally good playability, especially for picking, catapults the instrument to the top of my guitar collection. Compared to the Martin 000-28EC, which appears almost identical, the neck is not designed in the modified V-shape but in the low profile. It is also equipped with the Martin GoldPlus Natural1 Pickup.

The sound of the OMJM is truly stunning. Pressureful basses, differentiated mids and high-pitched heights make it a pleasure. Unbelievable what the guitar produces on "Martin-typical" sound.
Specially with the built-in pickup (completely without sound cosmetics) played over a Fishman Solo Amp, the sun rises. Guitar, cable, amp - it does not need to present a first class stage sound.

Visually, the instrument is a treat, as does the wonderful guitar case. All in all, I can recommend the Martin OMJM unrestricted. The only downside is that there is simply no minus point.
