A remarkable signature sound.

Looks to be a wonderful guitar.

I know you're enjoy it.

Thanks Stuart....

I have only played a BRW Franklin OM and I too was struck by the quality of the trebles. It was partly why I wanted a guitar by Nick.

I will be curious to hear how this guitar sounds. The 50-year old German Spruce should be superlative. Thd OMC is 5/8” bigger across the lower bout than Nick’s OM to make up for the lost body volume of the cutaway. This set of Cuban Mahogany is much denser than most HOG.

I should get to sample it by Christmas...
