Fantastic sound and playability with deluxe Martin refinements worthy of John Renbourn's signature.
The OMM Orchestra John Renbourn Acoustic Guitar features Martin's OM design, with a 15-inch body and long (25.4-inch) scale. It's ideal for fingerstyle playing with excellent balance and projection. The back and sides are Madagascar rosewood. The Italian alpine spruce top provides clarity and dynamic range. The soundboard has 1⁄4-inch scalloped bracing for maximum responsiveness.
The neck is carved from solid mahogany. While the neck's 1-3⁄4 inch width at the nut – with a low oval profile for playing comfort - is an original Martin OM design element, the diamond volute and slotted headstock with square slots are reminiscent of guitars from the late 19th and early 20th century. The tuners are likewise vintage inspired; Golden Age nickel tuners with ivoroid buttons and engraved plates.
In contrast, the ebony headplate and fingerboard showcase Martin inlay artistry at its best. The polished headstock features richly detailed unicorn inlay in abalone pearl, gold and white mother of pearl, and micarta. The fingerboard provides the "canvas" for unique mother of pearl pentangle (five-point star) position markers at the third, fifth (2), seventh, ninth, twelfth (2), fifteenth and seventeenth frets.
Additional vintage-inspired features complete the Martin OM John Renbourn Custom Signature Edition. The ebony pyramid bridge is fitted with plain ebony bridge pins: the endpin likewise is plain ebony. Fine herringbone purfling and delicate black/white line purfling encircle the top and back, respectively, each protected by grained ivoroid binding. The endpiece also is grained ivoroid, framed by fine black/white inlay. The nut and compensated saddle are crafted from bone. True to fingerstyle – and early Martin – tradition, the guitar comes sans pickguard. Aging toner on the top adds to the vintage-style patina. The body showcases Martin's flawless polished gloss lacquer finish, while the neck receives a satin finish.
