C.F. Martin & Co. (www.martinguitar.com) is proud to announce the introduction of the new OMM  John Renbourn Custom Artist Edition guitar.  The guitar celebrates the long  career of the fingerstyle guitar legend.

For more than 40 years, Renbourn has  remained a prominent fingerstyle guitarist, as a member of Pentangle in the  late-1960s and early-1970s, as a solo artist in the 1970s and 1980s, and most  recently as a collaborator with various artists.  The Renbourn Artist Edition is  inspired by Renbourn’s preference for orchestra model guitars and the original  orchestra model guitar made by C.F. Martin & Co. in 1929.

The new instrument features a classic Martin Orchestra  Model design made of solid premium tonewoods.  The top is made of Italian alpine  spruce, rare Madagascar rosewood on the back and sides, with a neck carved from  genuine mahogany.  An ebony headplate features a detailed unicorn inlay in  abalone pearl, gold and white mother of pearl and Micarta, while the ebony  fingerboard features a unique mother of pearl pentangle (five-pointed star)  design.

The model is finished with a polished gloss lacquer  finish with aging toner on the top to enhance its vintage style and is protected  in a Geib-style hardshell case. Each of the limited edition custom guitars bears  an interior label personally signed by John Renbourn and is numbered in  sequence.  Additionally, each guitar is equipped with Martin SP Lifespan  phosphor bronze strings.

The guitar will be one of several new  models featured at 2011 Summer NAMM in Nashville from July 21-23 (BOOTH #  1200).
