2018 Martin OM-42 Guitar
(Serial No. 2251873) Near mint almost unplayed condition. Part of Martins re-imagined Standard Series, the OM-42 is the closest to the prewar guitars. The guitar has Indian rosewood back and sides and a forward shifted X-braced Sitka spruce top with scalloped bracing. There is abalone binding on the top, soundhole rosette, and around the fretboard extension. Fretboard inlays are snowflakes and Top binding and soundhole rosette is abalone, and the back is bound in multiply black/white with a zipper backstrip. The CF Martin name is inlaid in abalone in the headstock. Has the old style open back gold tuners with gold butterbean buttons. 1 3/4 inch nut on the ebony fretboard, with 45 style snowflake fretboard inlays and the CF Martin name inlaid in abalone on the peghead. The OM is a 000 size body with a dreadnaught scale length neck, which gives a comfortable body size for playing and the longer scale for more resonance and sustain. Its a spectacular instrument in both sound and appearance. Nice low action - plays like silk - with that famous Martin sound. Here is a short video clip of this instrument. Comes with the original Geib style case. You deserve to own a pearl-trimmed Martin at least once in your life!
