Description

A piece 45 heaven from the master himself. Here we've landed a lifetime OM from Mr. T.J. Thompson, dressed to the nines with 45-style treatment throughout and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides plus Adirondack Spruce top. What more need be said? T.J. is centered in the traditional Martin style of building, with this 2007 OM-45 playing and feeling right at home alongside the prewar originals. Bar frets, V neck, gorgeous dark Abalone throughout--and a touch of modernity with a Schertler pickup system. With an upgraded Karura flight case, this T.J. Thompson OM-45 is safe and sound when not in use. But let's be honest: this is one guitar that's begging to be played, and who are we to say no?

I first played this guitar years ago and still remember it as one of my very favorite guitars ever played. TJ Thomson is world renowned for his incredible repair work, in caring for the most important Guitars on the planet. All of his knowledge from that life has gone into his construction of painstakingly accurate replicas of prewar Martin guitars. This one with the 45 style appointments and incredible Wood is something to behold and something sure to bring tears of joy to its next owner, all the while being an incredible collectible investment.
 
This is so close to Martin's original OM-45. I'm hard-pressed to think of another builder who manages to thread that needle so fine. And this one is just that: oh so fine.
