MARTIN CUSTOM SHOP OM AMAZON ROSEWOOD B&S, ADIRONDACK TOP- WOOD SELECTED BY STANG GUITARS
We took a trip to Nazareth Pennsylvania to tour the Martin factory and museum (highly recommended for any Martin lover). While we were there we were able to select wood from the Martin wood library. We then spec'd out a pair of Custom Models.
This Custom Shop OM started with a memory. We remembered a Martin made with an Adirondack Spruce and rare,Amazon Rosewood sides and back that was one of the best guitars we had ever heard. That was a dreadnaught. We wanted to see if the tone would carry over to an OM. We wanted the projection and power in a more controllable Orchestra Model.
We hand selected a stunning, wide grained Adirondack Spruce top and lucked out by getting the last OM sized Amazon sides and back set Martin had left.
We opted for the Modern Oval Performing Artist neck shape. Classic Herringbone trim was a must as was the Stang signature dot pattern on the 7,9,12 and 15th frets (see the dots in our logo). The guitar is visually sparse and uncluttered but with sublime fine details and tone for days.
