Martin CS-OM TRUE NORTH - 16
Limited to only 50 instruments, the CS-OM True North - 16 Orchestra model features an ebony fingerboard, bridge and headplate, a solid Adirondack spruce top and exceptionally figured Koa back and sides, which produces a beautiful, well-balanced tone. The back features a spectacular compass design inlaid with flamed jarrah, Claro walnut, waterfall bubinga and Paua pearl. The ebony headplate also has a True North design inlaid with mother of pearl.
2016 marks the 100th Anniversary of the iconic Martin Dreadnought and while the CS-OM True North - 16 is not a Dreadnought style, it demonstrates how a manufacturer with 183 years of tradition and premiere craftsmanship can continue to introduce innovative design elements while remaining authentic to their illustrious history.
