Back in 2002, John Mayer burst onto the national music scene with hits like "No Such Thing" and "Your Body is a Wonderland." The following year, when Martin introduced the OM-28JM John Mayer Signature Edition, the sizeable edition of 404 instruments sold out completely. The release of Mayer's "Heavier Things" album in late 2003 resulted in two more hit singles, "Bigger than My Body" and "Daughters," the second of which won Grammys for "Song of the Year" and "Best Male Pop Vocal of the Year." Touring in 2004 took him to Australia, Europe, Canada and across the United States and included a memorable performance at the Crossroads Guitar Festival. In 2005 he joined forces with bassist Pino Palladino and drummer Steve Jordan to create the John Mayer Trio, playing electric blues in a series of sold-out shows.
In light of John Mayer 's expanding reputation and fan base, C. F. Martin & Co. and John Mayer created the now wildly popular OM-JM John Mayer regular model which has since become a classic.
The OM-28JM has since become one of the most collectible Martin guitars with it's price rising steadily year after year. Decorated with custom inlays and fine sterling silver, this rare collector's piece in absolutely mint condition is certainly a keeper.
