Julius Borges' unassuming, traditional-inspired guitars are always shop favorites and well-loved by performing musicians. Julius built his guitars in the old style, and has been lauded for recreating the magic of Golden Era Martins better than Martin themselves. This OM-18 has a wonderfully warm, well-balanced voice, with sweet, snappy trebles that sing over top. A spacious 2-3/8" string spacing at the bridge makes fingerpicking a breeze. Fans of classic vintage looks will appreciate the tinted top, pyramid bridge, lack of pickguard, and clean line purfling and rosette.

This guitar is in excellent condition, brought to us by a customer who maintained it well. It's been recently set-up and the playability couldn't be better.
