This Custom Shop OM..Made from Madagascar Rosewood & a Bearclaw Italian Spruce Top, features many elegant and royal appointments such as the Vine of Harmonics fingerboard inlay, Style 45 Rosette w/ blue paua, Complete Hide Glue Construction, and the alternate torch headstock.
This Tonewood combination is highly versatile for many playing styles. The Bearclaw Italian Top can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both while providing strong harmonics and sounding very sweet to the human ear. Its intricate and complex sound combined with the madagascar rosewood creates a warm but powerful sonic instrument for your arsenal.
With Madagascar you'll get an instrument that resonates evenly across the entire tonal register and provides a crisp, sparkling treble commonly associated with Brazilian Rosewood. Madagascar is also becoming very scarce and this is a fantastic example of what a master luthier can do with the wood.
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent condition w/ only few light scratches on the pickguard.
