StewMac OM Acoustic Guitar Kit

About This Item

The only OM kit available with the features from the original era!
This is an accurate representation of a 1933 Martin OM—period correct shape, bridge and pickguard. The body shape and bracing patterns were taken directly from a 1933 OM. Now you can build a great sounding OM from AAA-grade tonewoods and the advantage of precision machining from our Ohio shop.

  • Carved mahogany neck
  • Accurately bent sides
  • Bookmatched back, joined and cut to shape
  • AAA spruce top with soundhole and rosette channel
  • Solid ebony fingerboard, bridge, and overlays

Designed with your success in mind
With the kit, you get a lot of help to make sure your guitar turns out great. The full-size blueprint is modeled after a prized vintage Martin, and shows exactly how every part fits. A sturdy cardboard body mold holds the guitar sides in the perfect contour as you build.

The instruction book is really a short course in guitarmaking, by luthiers Todd Sams and Dan Erlewine; no other kit has anything like it. Todd and Dan made the step-by-step DVD that's included with the kit, too (over $40 value). From start to finish, these guitarmakers guide you to a successful build.

You don't need a big shop
We've done the critical machining, so the neck joint and other parts fit well right from the start.

A slotted bone nut and shaped bone saddle are included, along with inlays, bindings and our two-way Hot Rod truss rod. (We know that tuning machines are something you'll prefer to choose for yourself.)

New torrefied spruce option
Choose a torrefied spruce top for the stability, tone and look of well-aged vintage wood. This high-temperature, low-oxygen kiln drying improves the wood, similar to decades of natural aging.

    Included in our kits:
  • Solid AAA tonewoods: spruce, rosewood and mahogany
  • Precisely machined neck joint at the 14-fret, dovetail or bolt-on
  • Bridge pins, end pin, frets, pickguard, bindings, rosette and trim
  • Hot Rod two-way adjustable truss rod
  • Precut heavy cardboard moldsĀ for trouble-free body assembly
  • Full-size blueprint and bracing template
  • Illustrated 36-page spiral-bound instruction book
  • Step-by-step DVD: Building an Acoustic Guitar Kit

Love the new size

By

Verified Buyer


I like that this size is "sort of" like having the Dreadnaught neck on the Triple O body. As usual, all the materials were top notch. One word of caution - I got the kit with the Torrefied top - the sound IS amazing, from day one, but be aware that the top is very unforgiving of any lapse in technique; it is very brittle and prone to splintering - of course that brittleness is probably what accounts for the great sound, but if this were my first kit, I'd probably stay with the "standard" top. With the standard top, the sound will get there within a year or two, but splinters and cracks are forever.

This kit appears to be everything that was advertised. Had one component that was wrong, called and talked to a custumer service rep who was very helpful, and had the new part in 3 days! Great Great service!!
