    Alpine Spruce is a tonewood with probably the longest tradition in music instrument making, having been used in making guitars, violins, and pianos for centuries. This revered tonewood features exceptional stiffness together with low density, and thus a great foundation for a great guitar sound. The sound properties are well-balanced between pure notes and power to harmonic and dynamic. At present, Alpine Spruce is an exclusive material because it is difficult to find wood with the premium grade needed to ensure the premium quality of the Martin Custom Shop guitars. As to the tonal qualities, one can say the Indian Rosewood give the ‘reverby’ sound to the warmth, complexity and overtones of the sound of this guitar. And because of the longer scale length compared to the 000 this model the tone is a little tighter, louder and more brilliant. That is why guitarists like Eric Clapton and John Mayer love this model!

    This Martin Custom Shop OM-42 is an exquisite looking tone machine, perfect for the fingerstyle guitarist. CALL OR MAIL FOR YOUR BEST PRICE!
