Das sagt Dana: Because of its characteristic superb balance, clarity of voice, and sustaining top register, the OM is often thought of as the quintessential fingerstyle guitar. It's not surprising, though, that more than a few players appreciate these same characteristics not only for flatpicking but also for a variety of other applications. We scallop both sides of the X brace on our OM. This provides the” looseness” required in a smaller guitar to produce a clear, strong bass response, and power and projection that belies its size. 


A dense, stiff tropical hardwood from Mexico, cocobolo produces a fairly bright overall tone emphasized by sparkling treble notes. Sonically it resembles koa but resonates a little deeper on the low end. The tone is fast, responsive, and articulate.

Aged Tone Tops

The process used to cure our Adirondack tops is a highly controlled, low-temperature variation of the basic commercial treatment. During processing, water, sugars, and resins are cooked off, leaving behind cellulose and lignum–the “glue” that binds cellulosic fibers together. Once processed, mass and weight are reduced, absolute stiffness is increased and internal damping is decreased; stiffness-to-weight ratio and Velocity of Sound (the rate at which vibration transmits through solid material) are dramatically increased.

... und das alles bringt eine OM hervor, die ein stabiles Bassfundament paart mit dem einem dynamischen und immer ausgwogenen OM-Sound... aber das hat Dana ja schon oben erwähnt.

Die GItarre zeigt nur minimale Spielspuren - keine Dings oder Dongs, dafür aber sehr schön eingespielt und 3 Tausend Euro unter dem Neupeis. 


Bei dieser Gitarre ist keine Mehrwertsteuer ausweisbar.
