Martin M-36

Martin … who?

The idea of “The jack of all things” is often followed by “master of none” yet that wasn’t how the saying was originally intended and today the original meaning is appropriate with regards to the M-36.

Many people regard this as an OM acoustic, but get close and you’ll see that its pretty big, a small Jumbo yet the body is fairly shallow.
This allows the bass response expected from a dreadnaught yet the tones reflect quickly from the guitars chamber happen improving attack with less “woofyness”.

Finger styles marry up with strumming in a package still retaining the unmistakable Martin flavour.
