Luthier's Notes: Our OM model, in a deep-body version. The extra depth increases bass response without compromising the punchy mids and sparkling trebles. The body is of Honduran rosewood, and the top is fine-grained Adirondack (Red) spruce. One-piece Honduran mahogany neck, with neck dart at rear of headstock. Dual action truss rod as well as carbon fiber stiffening bars either side of the truss rod. Fretboard is African ebony, and bridge and headstock overlay are Brazilian rosewood. Bindings, tuner buttons and bridge pins are Snakewood. The rosette, as well as top purflings are green abalone, and the fretboard inlays are the Weymann #1 pattern in red abalone.
Traditional "torch" pattern inlaid into headstock in red abalone. Black/white/black violin purflings on sides and back, fully mitered. Gold Waverly tuners (w/Snakewood buttons). Nut width- 1 3/4", pin spacing- 2 1/4". Nut and saddle of polished bone. Teardrop pickguard of faux tortoise shell.
Bob Singer's Notes: If you haven't played a guitar made with Honduran Rosewood, this is a perfect example of what this wood sounds like. It is very bright, with great volume. In my opinion, the perfect wood for an OM. This a beautiful instrument, very easy and enjoyable to play.
