Limited to only 100 instruments, this marvelous gem is a tribute to the late 1800's Arts & Crafts movement, which perpetuated romantic, folk, and medieval style artistry. Everything about this OM-Arts & Crafts-2018, from its design and build to the materials used, is perfection. It even includes an engraved plate label signed by Chris Martin IV. The Martin OM-Arts & Crafts features an immaculately constructed body, supremely elegant neck design, and stunning appointments. This guitar is for the high-end collector who wants to own an incredibly rare and valuable acoustic.

Immaculately Constructed Body
This Martin is breathtaking. From the woods used to build it, to the adornments, to the fact that only 100 exist throughout the world. There's also a bit of a story behind this guitar. The tonewoods were chosen because they were used by craftsmen and designers from the Arts & Crafts movement—who were advocates for economic and social reform, as alternatives to traditional industrial materials. Yet the woods they chose still provided excellent sound. The body is made from German white oak, paired with an Adirondack spruce top. The top features Martin's Vintage Tone System (VTS), which uses a special method of torrefaction to recreate the look, and more importantly the sound, of the era. This guitar also has scalloped X-bracing and a gloss body finish.

Supremely Elegant Neck Design
Secured by a hide glue dovetail neck joint at the 14th fret, the genuine mahogany neck on the OM-Arts & Crafts-2018 is engineered to be both comfortable and amazingly playable. With a 25.4" scale length, the neck is shaped into a modified low oval with a High Performance taper and a gloss finish. It's topped with a Guatemalan rosewood fingerboard lined with 20 frets. Overall, the look and feel of this neck is flawless.

Stunning Appointments
The Martin OM-Arts & Crafts is not for the uninitiated—this guitar needs to be appreciated for its incredible detail and unparalleled quality. Much of that can be seen in the appointments and decorations across this mesmerizing acoustic, which pay homage to the taste and style of the Arts & Crafts movement. Guatemalan rosewood was used to make the headplate, fingerboard, and bridge. Each of those pieces are not only derived from a gorgeous wood, but adorned with intricately beautiful inlays in an exceptionally hypnotic design. Even the bridge pins feature sparkling inlays. The pickguard and rosette around the soundhole boast radiant custom designs as well. The rosette is especially enthralling with its glimmering, interlocking pattern. The OM-Arts & Crafts-2018 also comes with thoroughly fashioned vintage copper open gear tuners, completing the fascinating artistic aesthetic. Last, but certainly not least, each one of these instruments includes an engraved plate label signed by Chris Martin IV himself.
