1993 Martin OM-40LE Prototype Acoustic Guitar
We accept most Payment methods & offer Financing
The OM-40LE was a very limited run of 86 instruments offered by Martin in 1994. The run broke down to 57 produced in Natural, 29 produced in Sunburst. These guitars displayed some very intricate inlay work including double bound abalone binding around the top, double abalone bound sound hole, abalone Martin logo, abalone snowflake inlayed ebony button machines as well as abalone Snowflake and Cats Eye inlays on the ebony fretboard. These forward scalloped X Braced Premium Spruce toped / Indian rosewood boxes project more like a dreadnought than an orchestra model yet maintain amazing definition. Just an amazing small run of guitars that has all the visual class, craftsmanship, tone and projection you could ever desire from a Martin instrument.
This very special example is the prototype constructed by the Martin factory in 1993 to introduce the run, even bearing a tag inside the sound hole stating " Production Prototype, This Instrument Is Not for Sale". This guitar has never been owned or circulated. It comes straight from the Martin factory private reserves locker! As one could surely imagine, a company like Martin would certainly put their best foot forward when introducing such an amazing, limited run of guitars. This instrument is proof of that! The selection, quality and color of the woods used to construct this fine guitar coupled with the playability, tone and projection make this instrument a must have for any guitar collector or Martin enthusiast. Comes complete with original hardshell case. This instrument does not include a Martin factory warranty. Please email or call with any questions.
