Default Brand New Musser OM, Cocobolo/Sitka Spruce

We’re excited to finally work with longtime luthier and tonewood guru, Don Musser, on an OM decked out in gorgeous woods and with a tone that cuts through the mix with a smooth, balanced response. Don pulled out some gorgeous Costa Rican Cocobolo for the back and sides (check out the brick-red hues), and used a set of fiercely tight-grained Sitka Spruce for the top, freshly revoiced for maximum resonance.

Bindings come in Curly Bigleaf Maple; the bridge and headstock veneer are Amazon Rosewood, Honduran Mahogany neck—the list goes on. We’d expect no less from a tonewood dealer of Don’s reputation. A high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish helps bring out every detail of the woods; you can almost shave in its reflection. The headstock is inlaid with Don's "A harvest Angel" motif.

The voice is characterized by a balanced response that’s consistent along the fretboard and between strings. We found this Musser OM was a great choice for fingerpicking in standard tuning, as well as Open D. When dug into, the guitar maintained an even response, but we also found that even delicately plucked notes had sustain consistent with an aggressive attack. Don has just revoiced the top for added resonance, and the voice has an even lusher, more spacious tone than before!

Smooth and easy, both on the ears and the eyes. Don Musser does the OM right.

This is a brand new OM that was built a few years ago and used for demonstration purposes. Don Musser recently revoiced the instrument, adding to its already beautiful sound the magic he has discovered in the last few years. It is currently sounding wide open and mature, a lovely example of how fine a sound a talented experienced maker can create. - Paul Heumiller
