We love to see customized instruments come through the store. This impressive Martin is an OM-28 at it's core, but features a handsome abalone torch inlay on the headstock overlay, the Martin Company Logo impressed on the back of the headstock and the body is bound in ivoroid and herringbone. It also features a substantial neck feel with its 1-3/4" nut width and modified V-contour neck shape. There are no glaring signs of wear save for some light pick marking on the pickguard and surrounding area. The strong and dynamic voicing is a perfect fit for fingerpicking and flat picking alike. This includes a nice hardshell case that appears to be non-original.
