The first of a pair of
traditional (1931ish) "OM"s I made for the sake of direct comparison.
They are close to identical with the major exception be that the other
is topped with Engelmann Spruce, while this one is topped with
Adirondack Spruce. The back and sides are Brazilian Rosewood with
Ivoroid binding and ebony finger board and bridge. Honduras mahogany
neck with truss rod, and waverly tuners in both cases. Both are
completely successful, the the Adi being a bit dryer/cleaner (as
expected), and the other being fantastically lush with great
and no apparant lack of head room, which is wondrous considering how
easy it's to get it going. Still, I have a favorite, and this is it.
That is because the drier character has that vintage cleanliness that I
simpple never tire of. It just keeps growing on me.
