With precise construction, the Sitka Spruce top and German White Oak back and sides of the Martin Custom Shop 000/OM offer a combination of resonance and durability, combined with a unique and uncommon tonewood selection. The Sitka Spruce of the guitar's top is celebrated for its strength and responsiveness, while the German White Oak of its back and sides contribute to the guitar's tonal palette, and also contribute to a beautiful bookmatched woodgrain, enhancing the aesthetic of the back of the guitar greatly.
Underneath the surface, Sitka Spruce bracing, employing scalloped X bracing, elevates structural integrity while allowing the soundboard to breathe freely and resonate. This meticulous bracing ensures optimal vibration transmission, promising a responsive instrument that reacts to the subtlest nuances playing.
This Martin Custom Shop 000/OM also features Antique White binding, a subtle touch that frames the guitar's contours with a vintage inspired touch. The rosette, adorned with a single ring of Pearl Boltaron, serves as a visual focal point of the front of the instrument, and a Faux Tortoise pickguard pays homage to tradition while offering acknowledging ecological building sensibilities.
Its genuine mahogany neck, with a Modified Low Oval profile and High-Performance Taper, provides a comfortable and ergonomic playing experience. The 20 carefully installed frets along the Black Ebony fingerboard, marked with Old Style 18 inlays, allow precise playing with stylish appearance.
A sleek gloss covers the body, accentuating the wood's natural beauty and grain, while the satin finish on the neck ensures a smooth fretting hand experience. The polished headplate serves as a crowning jewel, reflecting the meticulous craftsmanship that defines Martin Custom Shop instruments.
