For sale is a Martin OM-15 Custom (from LA Guitars). For those that don't know about this guitar, its basically a 000-15m, but with a 1-3/4" nut along with 2-1/4" saddle spacing, (faux) tortoise binding on the body, and (faux) tortoise heel cap. I was also told by Ted, when I talked to him about these guitars, that because they go through the Martin custom shop, they have a bit better build quality and setup from factory.
I'm the second owner of the guitar. I bought it locally from someone who bought it new from Ted at LA Guitars in March of 2017. All original invoices and receipts are still in the case.
The guitar is in excellent condition. It does have a very tiny indentation on the back of the neck, from what looks like a capo (I couldn't even get a photo of it), and some very slight swirling on the pickguard. Otherwise there isn't a mark on this guitar, and no fretwear. The first owner also upgraded the bridge pins to buffalo horn pins with mother-of-pearl snowflake inlays. The original ebony pins are also included.
It is setup and currently strung with D'Addario EXP16 (light) strings. String height is approximately 4/32 at 12th fret low E, and 3/32 at 12th fret high e. Plenty of saddle left too. It plays very nice and can get fairly loud without buzzing.
The included Martin hardshell case is in excellent condition. No dents, scuffs, rips, or other issues of any kind.
I'd keep it, but I just bought a Collings and need to thin the herd.
$1125 shipped and insured.
