You are looking at a Martin CS-OM True North-16 Acoustic Guitar, serial number 1960880. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Limited to an incredibly small run of only 50 instruments, this Martin CS-OM True North-16 is an outstanding piece of playable artwork. The exquisite adornments on this Custom Shop OM truly stand out in the crowded world of high-end acoustic guitars, allowing this guitar to look as stunning as it sounds. The CS-OM True North-16 begins with an Adirondack spruce top and a striking selection of premium figured koa for the back and sides, giving this OM a gorgeous, beautifully-balanced acoustic voice with a nice top-end sparkle and shimmer. The back showcases a captivating compass design that's inlaid with breathtaking flamed jarrah, claro walnut, waterfall bubinga, and paua pearl. Complementing the other arresting premium appointments, the top is trimmed with abalone while the natural wood rosette is also accented with abalone. The ebony headplate bears a custom True North design inlaid with mother of pearl, and comes fitted with a set of gold open-geared tuning machines with koa knobs. The concave square outline fingerboard inlays in abalone pair exceptionally well with the concave square outline inlays featured on the rosette and back.

Making this instrument as much of a player as it is a looker, the CS-OM True North-16 boasts a 25.4"-scale Modified Low Oval genuine mahogany neck with Martin's exclusive High Performance taper, an ebony fingerboard board with a 1-3/4" bone nut, an ebony Modern Belly bridge with a compensated bone drop-in saddle, and more! Comes complete with a hardshell case.
