Martin has introduced two new OM model to the Marquis series instruments: the OM-28 Marquis & OM-45 Marquis.

Like the original OM-28 constructed for plectrum banjoist Perry Bechtel in 1929, the OM-28 Marquis is a Style 28 Orchestra Model crafted with pre-war "Golden Era" appointments and tonewoods including Adirondack red spruce for the soundboard and genuine black ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. Like all Marquis Series instruments, East Indian rosewood is utilized for the back, sides and headplate.

The OM-45 Marquis shares identical tonewoods with the OM-28 Marquis, but is executed with Style 45 abalone bordering, grained ivoroid binding, vintage snowflake fingerboard inlays and a "C. F. Martin" inlaid headplate.
