You'll love it if ...

  • You've been looking for a dream guitar that can do it all while fitting into a reasonable budget!
  • Articulation is important.
  • You want a bright, clear, and very punchy sound with a deep, warm bass.
  • You enjoy complex overtones that aren't distracting or overwhelming.
  • You want a body that's a little smaller and more comfortable to play than a dreadnought, grand auditorium, or jumbo but don't want to go down to a OOO or parlor sized guitar.
  • You love OM body shapes but crave a deeper, boomier sound.
  • Your aesthetic leans toward a classic, elegant, understated beauty.

 

Look elsewhere if ...

  • You want a boomy, power-strummer. You'd probably be better-off with a dreadnought or jumbo style guitar.
  • You want a warm, mellow sound. You'll probably love a cedar top!
  • You want a mid-heavy guitar with a strong fundamental and reduced overtones. A mahogany, sapele, or maple back & sides will probably be more to your taste.
  • You want an attention-grabbing, highly-figured, highly-inlaid guitar.
