Martin have officially announced a brand new signature model for acclaimed actor — and one-time Guitar Aficionado cover star — Jeff Daniels, the OM Jeff Daniels Custom Artist Edition acoustic guitar.
"My new OM looks great and it has terrific balance all the way up the fretboard," said Daniels. "I'm noticing a solid low end that my original 1934 C-2 seems to lack. I remember striving for that element when we were specing it out, so mission accomplished! I've passed it around among several guitar playing crew members on set and everyone is impressed with the sound right out of the box – acoustic guitar heaven."
The OM Jeff Daniels acoustic features a rare 1932 shaded finish based on Daniels' 1934 Martin C-2 archtop. The guitar also sports Madagascar rosewood sides and back, an Adirondack spruce top and a modified V neck carved from genuine mahogany.
"We all know that Jeff Daniels is a talented actor, but I was unaware of what a tremendous musician, songwriter and guitarist Jeff Daniels is," said Martin Guitar CEO Chris Martin IV. "It is obvious that playing guitar is a very important part of his life. We are greatly honored at the opportunity to collaborate with him on this special project."
