You are looking at a Martin Custom Shop OM (000-14) Carpathian Spruce/Goncalo Alves Acoustic Guitar, serial number 1855799. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

This Martin Custom Shop OM (000-14) Carpathian Spruce/Goncalo Alves Acoustic Guitar is a part of our Custom Shop Martin Collection, which consists of some of the most remarkable acoustic guitars available today. To present you with an instrument that's truly unique, every aspect of each Custom Built Martin has been carefully selected by our Sam Ash Guitar Specialists—from the perfect pairing of tonewoods all the way down to the fine appointments and materials used. Combine all of that with the exceptional craftsmanship of the luthiers and builders at the Martin Custom Shop and you've got yourself a premium quality, one-of-a-kind Custom Martin.

With truly exquisite looks, unsurpassed playability, amazing tone, and exceptional versatility, this well-rounded custom Martin OM delivers on all fronts. This Custom Shop marries a Carpathian spruce soundboard to exotic Goncalo Alves back and sides. Aesthetically, this fine selection of Goncalo Alves displays a gorgeous figure that you just can't find in other tonewoods. The beautiful variegation that this tonewood displays is stunning, and its unique grain pattern on the bookmatched two-piece back is absolutely mind-blowing. The Carpathian spruce top, the Goncalo Alves body, and smaller 1/4" Golden Era Adirondack spruce braces give this custom OM its incredible balance and tonal range with full lows and a sparkling trebles. The smaller 000-14 fret body allows this guitar to shine no matter what style you play, and the Venetian cutaway gives you full access to the higher registers on the ebony fretboard. Employing a tonewood that's rarely used for Martin necks, the 25.4"-scale neck of this OM is carved from solid Spanish cedar into a low profile shape with Martin's ergonomic, superbly-playable Performing Artist taper. A set of nickel Gotoh open-geared tuning machines, a bone nut, and a solid black ebony Pyramid bridge with a bone saddle offer superior tuning stability, intonation, and performance.

The aesthetic appointments on this Martin Custom Shop OM are the perfect blend of simple, classic, and elegant. These adornments include East Indian rosewood bindings, black/maple/black top trim, a 00-21GE back purfling with D-18 inlays on each side, a 21 Special rosette with fine herringbone inlay, an OM-45-style faux tortoise pickguard, Style 21 select abalone Square fingerboard inlays, and a Large Old Style headstock logo. Comes complete with a hardshell case.
