OM-28 PERRY BECHTEL MARTIN GUITAR


...'In 1993, a PERRY BECHTEL Commemorative OM-28 was conceived to pay tribute to the man who is credited with the development of the 14-fret neck on Martin guitars...

...For several years, Cesar Díaz was Bob's guitar technician and amplifier specialist. Cesar was also a great player and joined in with Bob's band for a time, during which he often visited Martin to stock up on plenty of strings and to acquire a variety of stock and custom guitars for the tour. A few HD-28s and an OM-28 Perry Bechtel were purchased.'
