Merrill OM-18 Acoustic Guitar, Mahogany & Adirondack Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


Inspired by the coveted pre-war Martin guitars, the Merrill OM-18 has all of the tone, craftsmanship, and visual appointments one could ask for, without the hefty price tag. The classic combination of an Adirondack Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides creates a dry and defined woody tone, with balanced projection and incredible sustain. The bass response is punchy and deep, while the trebles remain glassy and sweet. One can physically feel the deep resonance of this guitar while playing it. Paired with its Brazilian Rosewood binding, soft V neck profile, hide glue construction, lightweight body, and scalloped x-bracing, this Merrill OM-18 embodies the sound and feel that was previously only reserved for vintage instruments. This guitar is in excellent condition overall with one repaired top crack. Ask for an in-hand description before purchasing.
