C. F. Martin OM-42 Custom Shop Model Acoustic Guitar (2012), made in Nazareth, PA, serial # 1579742, natural finish, Madagascar Premium Rosewood back and sides, Adirondack spruce top, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, original black tolex hard shell case.

This 2012 Custom Shop Orchestra Model OM-42 is a truly lovely instrument, a fine example of Martin's higher grade modern guitars. The features include hide glue construction, solid Madagascar Premium Rosewood back and sides, Adirondack spruce top with "Golden Era" scalloped, forward shifted bracing, fossilized Ivory 1 3/4" nut, grained Ivoroid binding, gold Waverly tuners with grained Ivoroid buttons, small "teardrop" pickguard and the traditional elaborate Style 42 abalone inlay patterns with snowflake inlay on the bridge wings. The abalone trim is particularly eye-catching on the top. The guitar is additionally fitted with an L.R. Baggs "Anthem Tru-Mike" amplification system with a soundhole control unit, the instructions and adjustment tool are in the case pocket. This is a powerful sounding instrument both acoustically and amplified, one of the nicest modern Martins we have had recently.

Overall length is 40 1/4 in. (102.2 cm.), 15 3/8 in. (39.1 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 4 1/16 in. (10.3 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 25 1/2 in. (648 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/4 in. (44 mm.).

This guitar shows some fairly minimal wear, just a mall scuffs, dings and dents here and there. The back has heavier scuffing and some minor scratching, the only really notable wear to the instrument. The only alterations are a gold-plated strap button added to the heel and the Anthem system fitted. This is a fine playing and great sounding OM, in the original Martin HSC that shows some minor road wear. Overall Excellent Condition.
