Orchestra Model (OM) Guitars

With a clear and crisp sound, orchestra model (OM) guitars are magnificent for fingerpickers. Martin & Co debuted this size in 1930, and since then they have become a staple of acoustic guitar players all over the world.

Often abbreviated to OM - following Martin’s nomenclature - they are larger than parlour size guitars and have a much richer sound while still retaining the comfort and playability. They don’t have as much bass as a grand auditorium or dreadnought and as such are perfect for more melodic, precise playing.

There is a variant model to the OM known as the 000 or ‘Triple 0’. The body size between these two models is exactly the same; the difference is the ‘scale length’ i.e. the playable length of the strings. The OM scale length is half an inch longer - giving it a rich, piano-like voice - whereas the shorter scale length of the 000 means there is less tension on the strings and, consequently, it is much easier to bend. Eric Clapton’s signature model for example is a 000-28, enabling him to play all his famous blues licks with ease.

Orchestra model guitars are ideal for beginners because they produce a beautiful, rewarding tone without compromising on comfort and playability.

Why should I choose a orchestra model (OM) guitar?

  • Favourite for fingerpickers
  • Articulate sound
  • Comfortable size
  • Frequently Asked Questions about Orchestra Model (OM) Guitars

    Question: Will OM guitars fit in a dreadnought hard case?
    A dreadnought case will be too big for an orchestra model. Instead, cases designed for classical guitars are a better fit.
    Question: Does guitar body shape affect tone?
    Yes, the two main factors in an acoustic guitar tone are the body size and the types of wood. Big guitars have more bass and are better suited to strumming with a pick. Small guitars are clearer sounding and are better suited to fingerpicking.
    Question: Are OM guitars good for fingerpicking?
    Yes, orchestra models are ideal for fingerpicking.
