Bourgeois Custom OM
The Deluxe Version of Bourgeois Vintage OM has been patterned after their famed D-150 in its appointments, featuring Premium Brazilian rosewood back and sides and an Aged Tone Adirondack spruce top. Elegantly appointed with an abalone rosette, ivoroid body, fretboard and headstock binding, short pattern slotted squares and diamonds inlay, and gold Waverly tuners, this OM is a treasure.
You can think of this Custom OM as a smaller version of their Vintage D--or maybe it's the other way around. The Orchestra Model, you see, is really where it all started.
The This Custom OM is a culmination of Dana's two decades of experience in repairing, restoring and building the legendary Orchestra Model. The OM is the only model in which they scallop both sides of the X brace, as a result of its natural need for a little extra help in bottom register.
Because of its characteristic superb balance, clarity of voice, and sustaining top register, the OM was once thought of as the quintessential fingerstyle guitar. It still is. It's not surprising, however, that more than a few players have begun to realize that these same characteristics are also highly employable for a diverse variety of applications.
Adirondack Spruce, "the holy grail" of topwoods, drives the top of this powerful instrument. Adirondack is generally favored by heavy handed players, and provides nearly unlimited headroom when you need the extra power.
Brazilian Rosewood is an extremely rare tonewood with deep bass and brilliant trebles that was used on the famous vintage guitars we have all grown to love. Brazilian brings remarkable darkness, depth, and warmth; while exhibiting glorious overtones across the entire tonal spectrum.
Additionally, the top bracing is attached with Hot Hide Glue, which was the original glue used on the early guitars. Hide glue has been phased out by most luthiers due to its labor intensive application & difficulty in building a spotless, clean body interior. Hot hide glue sets up like glass, offering a more immediate and efficient transfer of energy throughout the top, making the overall guitar more responsive with a clarity of tone that is unmatched.
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ only a few light scratches on the top.
