Building on the overwhelming success of these instruments, Martin has come out in 2006-2007 with this EXTREMELY attractive OMC-28M utilizing premium Adirondack spruce top and brace wood in conjunction with rare Madagascar rosewood back & sides!

Martin OM-45 Marquis (No Longer Available)

Martin OM-45 Marquis (No Longer Available)

According to C. F. Martin III, the 14-fret neck was developed in late 1929. Prior to the period, guitars were generally equipped with a 12-fret neck. As the story goes, a renowned plectrum banjoist of the day, Perry Bechtel, suggested to Frank Henry Martin that he make a guitar with a 14-fret neck. Bechtel reasoned that the longer neck would increase the guitar’s range and make it a more versatile instrument. Following Bechtel’s advice, Martin introduced a guitar with the longer neck and dubbed it an “Orchestra Model.”
