This guitar is an OM size guitar. One of my favorite guitars of all time (that I owned) was a Martin OM-45, which I owned for almost 35 years. I wanted to build a guitar that had all the brilliance of that OM, a perfectly designed finger picking guitar where each string has the same tonal value, but a deeper 'voice', not like a dreadnought, just deeper then a traditional OM, so the luthier and I designed this instrument and came out with the exact sound I was looking for. I had a soundport put in which increases the volume of the guitar. As you look through the pictures notice the beautiful Zircote back and sides; the top is Cedar and the Cockatoo on the top is an exact replica of one that I owned. I decided to have feathers 'floating' down the fretboard as if they falling (coincidentally where the dot markers usually are. The inlay artistry was done by Larry Robinson.
