Default Martin OM-45 Custom Deluxe project

removed RMC board. tired of the transducers popping off and they are getting harder to replace. now gone with a goacoustic audio board. being soldered up. replaced old midi and guitar jack. FMI bridge pins from Dave. The transducers are graphtech. if your watching wayne the guitar is ok bro in good hands.



needs a topcoat refin all over but havent decided if Im going to let it go Wilie style yet.



what it look like before I tore it up to do some repairs



handpicked BRW from martins stash in 1994
englemann master grade 8 top. its been replaced once. gigbags arent for guitars but idiots

when it comes back Ill post up some pics of the back its all bookmatched back and sides. the original martin quote in 1994 was 22,950.00.

but did you notice the handy little banjo style neck carve?

the elliptic soundhole?


Martin doesnt cut up many tops like this anymore
