1932 Martin C-2 OM-42 Conversion
1932 Martin C-2 converted to OM-42 by David Musselwhite in excellent condition. This conversion was done with a long scale Martin neck with 1 11/16" nut width, 42 style inlays, ivoroid binding, Brazilian rosewood peghead veneer, engraved gold Waverly tuners, MOP logo, vintage profile neck with soft V, adjustable truss rod. The top is Engelmann spurce with forward X bracing, scalloped to be period correct and laid out just like a 1932 OM, maple bridge plate of correct size as well. Top and neck finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer, back retains original finish and sides have light overspray. Nut and saddle are ivory, frets are medium tall wire. David Musselwhite worked at Martin for many years and is a well know repair and restoration specialist. The work is all top quality and of course looks as though it were done at the factory. The action is comfortable at 6/64" on bass side to 5/64" on the treble at the 12th fret. There is plenty of saddle height should one desire it lower. The sound is impressive with a full responsive bass and power in the midrange. It is equally at home with flat picking and fingerstyle. Includes modern hard case.
