Description

T.J. Thompson is considered one of the very finest builders of modern replicas of the best pre-war Martin guitars. This OM-45 was modeled after a 1930 OM-45 but for the fancier Torch Inlay. It's clear from the tone that T.J. has an uncanny way of voicing his guitars as they really do sound and respond like they are 100 years old. Every construction detail including bar frets and the omission of a truss rod is aimed at reproducing the holy grail and this guitar does it! We are simply flabbergasted at how amazing this guitar is. It's little wonder a T.J. Thompson guitar is among the most rare and collectible in the guitar world.

There are not many guitars that take my breath away, this one does. I have rarely heard such power and deep tone from a traditional OM guitar.
 
This guitar is the closest thing to a mint pre-war Martin OM-45 that you will find anywhere. It features the Alternative Torch and even the bindings are yellowed.
