This stunning OM offers simply incredible craftsmanship, tone and beauty. The flawless Shadowburst finish looks fantastic over the solid mahogany top and the hand crafted Paua abalone purfling frames the body beautifully. This acoustic electric model is fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs Element pick up and StagePro EQ for optimal live performance.
Nothing can really match a guitar made from all-solid wood. The deflection of the notes is quicker, the quality of the sound is better, you can obtain optimal response and the sound of your guitar will improve as it ages.
FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design, this means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development.
Along with a more angled headstock, the bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angel of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to the sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles.
The finish features a clear deep shine that is applied as thinly as possible, again to help optimize tone.
