This is the third instrument from Martin that pays homage to the Arts & Crafts design movement that dates back to the 1800s and often presents in the form of romantic, folk or medieval style decoration. The movement was thought to be anti-industrial and advocated for economic and social reform. This ornate orchestra model features Arts & Crafts inspired pearl inlay designs throughout, paired with German white oak back and sides and an Adirondack spruce top with a Guatemalan rosewood headplate, fingerboard and bridge. The tonewoods for this guitar were selected for their significance in the movement because they were used by craftpersons and designers as alternatives to traditional industrial materials and excel tonally in the voice of the guitar. The OM-Arts & Crafts includes a comfortable high-performance neck, a Vintage Tone System (VTS) top and vintage copper open gear tuners. This model is limited to 100 instruments and includes an engraved plate label signed by Chris Martin IV.
