make / manufacturer: Martin
model name / number: SWOMGT
I’m selling my beloved Martin Sustainable Series “Diaperwood” OM size guitar (read on to find out why it’s called diaperwood!).

It’s a tough decision for me but my elbow aches when I play anything except the short fret scale of my Taylor.

I spent the better part of a year searching for a guitar that sounded as good as this one, then paid it off on layaway while I visited it on lunch breaks. I hope it can find a new owner that appreciates it as much.

The top is made out of Sitka spruce, which was nicknamed “Diaperwood” because it was reclaimed from wood originally intended for diaper pulp. The back and sides are FSC certified, sustainably grown cherry wood. It has tortoiseshell inlay details, head, and pickguard.

The guitars have been discontinued and currently are hard to find. This one is in phenomenal condition. It comes with an original Martin case ($200 value). See photos!

Asking $1500.
