The Paul Simon Limited Edition from Martin Guitars is full of good Karma, after all it benefit The Children's Health Fund which Paul Simon co-founded. It is also one of the very few things Paul ever endorsed. He worked closely with Martin to determine the specs and decided on a OM body with forward bracing, adorned with 42 Style appointments, Paul Simon inlaid on the last fret, label signed by Paul Simon, Tortoise bindings on the body and neck and a customized fingerboard that starts at a 1 11/16" nut but is wider than most up high to facilitate fingerstyle. The tone from the Rosewood and Sitka Spruce body is clear and open with shimmering overtones. This Martin Paul Simon guitar is perfect for fingerstyle play. Only 223 of these were made, so it's a very limited edition as well.

1997 Martin OM-42PS - OM Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"This is a treasure for any fan of folk music, Paul Simon has done so much for the guitar and music in general. As Al says this is a limited edition that really works, the tone is amazing and it plays great with the custom neck specs that Paul Simon requested. This one is like new, not a mark on it, and it sure is pretty. The appointments are very tasteful. Martin only made 223 of these in the end, so it's a rare guitar as well as a great guitar. The label is signed by Paul Simon and I'm sure he's proud to have his name on this Martin Guitar." - Paul Heumiller

"This is one of my favorite Martin signature series guitars. The tortoise style bindings make it look very classy along with the 42 style inlay. The forward x bracing makes it sound awesome. It also has a low profile neck that fits my hand perfectly. The action is set low on this one and it plays like butter." - Al Petteway
