Limited to only 50 instruments, the Martin CS-OM True North features highly figured Koa back and sides and an Adirondack Spruce soundboard which produce a lush yet well-balanced tone. The guitar's back features a spectacular compass design inlaid with flamed jarrah, Claro walnut, waterfall Bubinga and Paua pearl. The ebony headstock veneer is inlaid with the True North design as well (solid mother of pearl). A striking example of C.F. Martin's continuing pursuit of excellence in craftsmanship, and a guitar whose sound will leave you wanting for nothing. Priced with Custom Shop hard case!
