Martin Introduces OMC Jacques Stotzem Model Guitar [ Winter NAMM 2007 ]

United States
18 January 2007 — With the dynamic range, subtle timing and harmonic complexity that distinguish his playing, Belgium guitarist Jacques Stotzem creates a fingerstyle landscape both intriguingly familiar and absolutely unique. A stylistic chameleon whose original compositions delve into blues, jazz, folk and even rock & roll, Stotzem transcends easy classification, but his polished and emotionally powerful playing has garnered fans in Europe, the United States and beyond.

The OMC Jacques Stotzem features Martin’s rounded cutaway for easy access to the upper frets. Instead of the standard OM neck, this Custom has a wide low profile neck, with a diamond volute at the base of the headstock. Special tall — but not jumbo - frets grace the plain black ebony fingerboard. Fishman Ellipse Blend™ electronics provide virtual “plug and play” amplification.

Other appointments give the OMC Jacques Stotzem Custom Edition an understated beauty all its own. Richly colored solid East Indian rosewood is matched to a top of premium solid Sitka spruce with scalloped bracing. The top, back and sides feature tortoise-color binding. A white/black/white backstrip and tortoise-color end piece framed with black/white purfling complete the body appointments.

Carved from genuine mahogany, the neck is topped by an East Indian rosewood headplate, a rich backdrop for the familiar gold “C.F. Martin & Co.” Old Style decal. Gotoh nickel open-geared tuners with butterbean knobs provide smooth tuning and a bit of vintage flair. Polished gloss finish on the body and neck allows the OMC Jacques Stotzem Custom Edition’s beauty to shine.

Delivered in a molded hardshell case, each OMC Jacques Stotzem Custom Edition guitar bears an interior label personally signed by Jacques Stotzem and Martin Chairman C.F. Martin IV, and numbered in sequence. Authorized Martin dealers will begin accepting orders for this Custom Edition immediately and the names of participating dealers will be posted on the Martin website,
