All aboard! Martin and Pennsylvania-based watchmaker RGM have teamed up once again to create something truly unique—the OM 20th Century Limited. Celebrating technology and innovation, this limited-edition handcrafted work of art pays tribute to the Art Deco-inspired passenger train of the same name that revolutionized travel in the mid-1930s—around the time that would become known as Martin’s “Golden Era,” when the company’s instruments began to revolutionize music. This guitar is full of intricate design elements, including custom streamliner-inspired inlay throughout, European flamed maple binding, gold open back tuning machines, and an inlaid ebony pickguard. The OM 20th Century Limited also features hide glue construction, a spruce VINTAGE TONE SYSTEM® (VTS) top, and Guatemalan rosewood back and sides for superior tone. The guitar even comes with a custom, handcrafted railroad-inspired watch from acclaimed watchmaker RGM. Only 20 of these elegant OM 20th Century Limited guitars will be built.
