PG's Jordan Wagner is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for NAMM 2010 where he visits the Martin Guitars booth. In this segment, we get introduced to two of their newest models; the OMCE Mahogany and the OMC-LJ Pro - Laurence Juber Signature Model.

The OMCE features certified mahogany blocks with Mortise/Tenon neck joint, solid certified European Spruce top, maghogany sides and black richlite.

The Adirondack spruce top, providing the full bottom associated with vintage Martin tone, combined with flamed big leaf maple back and sides, the bass is much more defined and the midrange more prominent and complex.

Deftly accented by a Style 28 wood fiber rosette, fine herringbone top inlay, fine black/white wood fiber back inlay, HD-style zigzag center strip purfling, and grained ivoroid binding. The grained ivoroid endpiece is framed by fine black/white wood fiber inlay. The ebony belly bridge is fitted with a compensated saddle

The two-piece maple neck, like that on many archtop guitars, contributes generous sustain and features a "Modified V" profile and a diamond volute at the base of the headstock. The handsome black ebony headplate bears the classic Old Style gold "C.F. Martin & Co." decal and nickel Waverly tuners with butterbean knobs.
