Incredible service, fantastic store and a guitar to die for!

Made in a collaboration between fingerstyle legend John Renbourn and Martin Guitars, this has to be one of the best OM style guitars we've ever seen from Martin. Designed in the Martin Custom Shop, with guidance from John Renbourn and Martin's VP Dick Boak, it couldn't have a more noble beginnings. Rare Italian Alpine spruce was chosen for the top, with a highly prized Madagascar Rosewood back and sides. The tonal result is extraordinary, rich and voluptuous with great power, clarity and articulation. It's helped by the pyramid bridge, which is lighter than the standard 'belly' variant, and the slotted peghead, to give a greater string angle on the nut.
Visually it's adorned with 'pentagle' fretboard inlays and a paua abalone unicorn on the headstock. Each example is personally hand signed by John Renbourn and Chris Martin IV, making it the ultimate players and collectors piece alike.
