This is our first guitar (OM-01) and is therefore priceless to us. Many of the aspects of this guitar have continued to the next guitars, most notably the logo sound port. This guitar has Indian Redwood back and sides with a Sitka Spruce top. The end wedge has Olive Wood, which I continue to try to add to other guitars.
This guitar has African Mahogany (Khaya) back and sides that has a beautiful grain pattern and Padauk bindings that provide a great red highlight to the guitar. It also has a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany neck, and Ebony fretboard. As always, this guitar has a non-VOC all natural ingredient finish that provides a beautiful satin finish.
