Based off the famous inlay work on the 1930 OM-45 Deluxe Martin Guitar, The Torch features handmade abalone inlay nestled into our Ebony Black Richlite.
Richlite is the same sturdy stuff that prominent guitar makers use for guitar fingerboards and bridges – instead of ever more endangered Rosewood and Ebony woods.
After a lengthy process of choosing the best and most complimentary pieces of abalone, we carefully glue each piece in by hand. We then sand, polish and buff to a mirror sheen, just like we do for real guitars. All in our shop in Minnesota.
This labor intensive process means these cases take more time to make, but are worth the wait. Expect an extra week or so. Note: These cases are limited, and we make no guarantees about availability. This is the most detailed inlay iPhone case in the world.
If you're a Martin Guitar fan, know one, or just love skillfully handmade items, you may have just found the perfect case!
Our color cases have a more subtle contrast than our bamboo or walnut cases; they feel as good as they look, and they only look better with time!
