<img src="/Portals/0/John_Renbourn.jpg" alt="img" style="width: 300px; height: 600px; float: left; margin-right: 9px; margin-bottom: 9px;" />C.F. Martin &amp; Co. 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.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> 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&rsquo;s preference for orchestra model guitars and the original orchestra model guitar made by C.F. Martin &amp; Co. in 1929.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> 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.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> 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. &nbsp;Additionally, each guitar is equipped with Martin SP Lifespan phosphor bronze strings. &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The guitar will be one of several new models featured at 2011 Summer NAMM in Nashville from July 21-23. &nbsp;<br /> <br /> For a list of authorized C.
