OM-42: Beautiful Guitar, Beautiful Price

This Martin OM-42 is easily the nicest acoustic we've had here at The Minor Chord all year. Solid Indian rosewood back and sides, solid Sitka spruce top with aging toner, scalloped X-bracing. Like all of Martin's 42-level instruments, the appointments are elegant but not overdone.

Many of our customers are switching from Dreadnaughts to the Orchestra Model (OM) body shape. It's large enough to project, works well for many playing styles, and is more comfortable under the right arm. If your shoulder has been bothering you when you play, you should switch to an OM too!

This is an investment-grade guitar that will be played for generations. The best part: Our retirement sale means a REALLY special price! We're offering this guitar at an unbelievable $5,599 - a whopping $800 off the prices you'll find online. more >>>

Martin 000 Jr-10E SALE!!!

The Martin 000 Jr-10  guitars are a great alternative if you're looking for a smaller guitar that doesn't compromise on sound. Martin makes these guitars in the shape of a full-size 000 but shrunk down a bit to fit smaller players and for ease of travel. The all solid sapele and Sitka spruce combination yields a warmer and fuller sound than you would expect from the compact body size.

We are overstocked on the acoustic-electric model (000C Jr-10E) with a cutaway and pickup.

Call or inquire here for our sale price.

You Can Listen To Our Guitars

The sound character of an acoustic guitar is really impossible to convey with just words. The best way to appreciate a guitar is to hear it in person.

To help you decide whether it's worth the trip to try a guitar in person, we've made short recordings of some of our best instruments. more >>>
