You are looking at a Martin OMJM John Mayer Signature Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 2013094. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

When Martin introduced the OM-28JM John Mayer Signature Edition in 2003, people who had heard of John Mayer - and even those who hadn't - were enchanted by the guitar. It featured a fast neck, an ultra-responsive Engelmann spruce soundboard, silver-color line inlays and accents at the bridge and headstock, and distinct fingerboard inlays that proved as popular as the guitarist who designed it. The limited run of 404 instruments sold out completely.

As Mayer's fan base and reputation continued to grow, the number of OM-28JM John Mayer Signature guitars produced began to look awfully small. So, C.F. Martin & Co. asked John Mayer if he would collaborate on a second namesake guitar, one that embodies many of the same features and attributes as his first, but one that would be more affordable and more widely available in the tradition of the wildly popular 000-28EC Eric Clapton.

For the OMJM, the East Indian rosewood back and sides are complemented by an incredibly responsive Engelmann spruce soundboard that's enhanced by scalloped scalloped "X" bracing to produce a rich, warm, full-bodied acoustic voice. The entire body benefits from the flawless look of a gloss finish while the top is also treated with antique toner to provide a gracefully aged aesthetic. The headstock boasts an East Indian rosewood headplate that displays a set of nickel open geared tuning machines with butterbean knobs and an old style Martin logo in silver as opposed to the familiar gold (another nod to the OM-28JM). Appointed similarly to its predecessor, the OMJM features a Style 45 rosette that boasts a lustrous center ring of colorful abalone shell, a bold herringbone top trim, black/white back inlays, a Zig-Zag back strip down the center, grained ivoroid binding throughout, and a traditional faux tortoise pickguard.

The select hardwood neck features a diamond volute, and for superb playability and comfort, the neck combines a 1-11/16" width with the low profile shape to facilitate easy fretting. The ebony fingerboard is adorned with a unique inlay with two dots flanking a slotted square at the 12th fret while 1/8" mother of pearl inlays sit at the 5th, 7th (two), 9th, 15th and 17th frets. At the end of the fingerboard, between frets 19 and 20, John Mayer's signature is inlaid in mother of pearl. A bone nut is paired up with an ebony bridge that's fitted with a set of white bridge pins with abalone dots and a compensated Tusq saddle. Equipped from the factory with Martin Gold Plus Natural I electronics, the OMJM's natural acoustic voice will be faithfully reproduced when you plug into any amp or PA system. The interior label is imprinted with the signatures of John Mayer and Martin Chairman C.F. Martin IV, and is also numbered in sequence. A remarkable art deco-inspired monogram is embroidered on a special vintage Geib style hardshell case to provide a touch of John Mayer's personal style.
