Choice tonewoods and beautiful custom inlays make this Martin guitar a hot piece of rock n' roll history.
The Martin OM Chris Hillman Acoustic Guitar is a truly stunning piece of work. A solid Adirondack spruce top with a solid East Indian rosewood back and sides provide rich, balanced tone. The guitar's custom inlays provide the eye candy. The OM Chris Hillman guitar is a tribute to one of the founding members of the Byrds, and a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame—a true "guitar hero." The guitar's low profile 1-3/4" (at the nut) neck is carved from genuine mahogany. For optimal sound, both the nut and compensated drop-in saddle are crafted from genuine bone.
