I think that every time I walked by the Martin booth at this year’s NAMM music trade show, there was a large crowd around the Martin OM-21 Special! It really did make quite an impression with a LOT of dealers and it’s not surpising considering the features … bone nut & saddle, Gotoh butterbeans with pewter finish, crisply executed ebony pyramid bridge, wide fingerstyle-friendly string spacing on a low profile neck, retro looking rosewood binding and a premium tortoiseshell pickguard on the vintage toner Sitka top!

What really perked my interest up is the 1/4″ scalloped strutting pattern. One of my favorite Orchestra Models is the OM-35 which also features this strutting configuration. The combination of a regular 25.4″ scale with 1/4″ scalloped struts and a narrower pyramid bridge has combined to create a fingerstylist’s dream!
