Default SOLD: 2017 Martin Custom Shop OM VTS ADI/Guatemalan...**Super sweet!**

2017 Martin Custom Shop OM

I bought this guitar a short while ago during a splurge of buying and although it is an amazing representation of Martin's ability to build a high end instrument, I just frankly overspent. Additionally, it overlaps with another Martin I own that I have some sentimental attachment to.

From the former owner:
"The guitar has a mixture of Style 28 & 42 appointments. Ivoroid bindings, Herringbone Purfling and the back-strip are Style 28 features. While beautiful Abalone Rosette and Snowflake Inlays are Style 42 features. Premium VTS treated Adirondack Spruce over Guatemalan Rosewood has been the tone-wood combination of choice for many high-end Martin one-offs and limited edition guitars. The wood used on this guitar is beautifully figured, especially the Guatemalan Rosewood, which is a deep-red color straight-grain premium set. The guitar has opened up well, with a deep bass and sweet, lingering high end. The overtones are perfect, with a great sustain. Excellent to Mint condition. No scratches, cracks, dents or anything. To match with the Ivoroid Bindings on the guitar, I have upgraded the original tuners from Grover to Waverly with Ivoroid Buttons, which were a simple drop-in, zero modifications. Also, I upgraded the saddle to WAHI from Bob Colosi and Bridge pins to Walrus Jawbone from David Warther, which again are simple drop-ins. Of course, originals to all of these will be provided with the guitar, and is included in the asking price. You can drop the originals right back in under 10 mins, but I doubt you would want to, as I have spent extreme care and attention to set this guitar up for the best tone and playability possible."

A few particulars:

Body Size: 000-14 Fret (OM)
Top: Premium VTS Adirondack Spruce
Top Braces: Adirondack/Scalloped 1/4"/Golden Era OM #6A
Back and sides: Guatemalan Rosewood
Nut Material: Bone
Headplate: Guatemalan Rosewood
Scale Length: 25.4"
Fingerboard Width at Nut: 1-3/4"
Bridge String Spacing: 2-1/4"
Fingerboard Inlays: Style 42 Snowflakes (Beautiful Abalone)
Gloss finish stem to stern
Bridge Material: Ebony
Tuning Machines: Waverly Butterbean Tuners w/ Ivoroid Buttons
Bridge and End Pins: Fossil Walrus Jawbone
Pickguard: OM Teardrop / Black Handmade

I have the build sheet and retail for this guitar when it was built was over $9400

SOLD I'm open to reasonable offers and trades plus cash...no straight trades.

Beautiful! How about the neck profile; mod V, or low profile?

Thanks Steve! It is a low profile neck. For me, it is the ideal size as it plays easy for my hand size.

Thanks to those who have inquired about this one. It is still for sale. I can ship this tomorrow, but will be out of town for a week after that. Reach out to me and make a deal and you could be enjoying this before the weekend!!

Someone will love this guitar!
