Martin / OM45 Deluxe / 1997 / Guitar

The Martin Custom Shop is for the discerning guitar player who wants total control over all specifications and appointments of their instrument. With the customers vision, the artists skill and using the finest materials, the Martin Custom shop always manages to create the perfect, tailor-made guitar. The attention to detail of these instruments is stunning, and the feeling of owning a Custom Made Martin guitar is simply irreplacable. This Custom Shop OM-45 Deluxe from 1997 is a free interpretation of the 1930s original of wich only 14 were made. Back then it was by far the most expensive flattop Martin had on offer. In 1998 and fairly recently Martin did a small re-run of respectively 14 and 11 pieces. Although this guitar does not have all the features of those models, it does have a few unique features all its own. It has an OM body with 632mm (24 7/8") scale length crafted using premium Indian Rosewood mated to a finely silked Sitka spruce top with rear shifted scalloped bracing. The grained ivoroid bindings and blindingly beautiful abalone trim follows the "45 Deluxe" styling gracing the entirety the body, twice around the soundhole finally finding its way along the edge of the V-shaped mahogany neck, slotted headstock and fingerboard. The bridge, headplate and fingerboard also boast plenty of abalone inlays to admire. A stunning custom shop model which is still in excellent condition; it has some angelhair playwear, several small dings in finish of both body and neck and a small spot of discoloration on the back. Includes original hardshell case.  Specifications: Body Shape: OM Custom Finish: Natural Top Material: Solid Sitka Spruce Body Material: Solid Indian Rosewood Cutaway None Lefty None Body Details: Ivoroid bindings, 45-deluxe style bindings and trim Neck Material: Mahogany Neck Profile: V Fingerboard Material: Ebony Fingerboard Radius: 16” Neck Details: Rosewood headstock overlay, style 45 Deluxe bindings and trim Nutwidth: 43.5 mm - 1 11/16" Scale Length: 632 mm - 24 7/8" String Spacing: 55 mm - 2 3/16" Bridge Material: Ebony w/ abalone inlays Tuners: 3-on-a-plate Pickup: None Condition: excellent Cosmetic Condition: some angelhair playwear, several small dings in finish of both body and neck and a small spot of discoloration on the back Modifications/, Repairs: None Tech Notes: None Travels in: Original Hardshell case Accessories: None

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
