As we say on the east coast ... Deadly! I'm so happy for you, man. I love all the design choices on this one, it looks super classy. Being an avid fan of Marc's work I can just sense how great this is. I'll add my voice to the chorus of folks who are looking forward to the clips, and I'm particularly excited for the Luthier spotlight video! Congrats and enjoy it in good health.

That's good to hear, so far my observation is less overtones than expected from a rosewood guitar, but I'm not mad about it. It makes me play more assertively to coax some extra horsepower from the Sitka!

The medulary rays on that top are something else. I can't recall ever seeing a top that surpasses that.

I cannot wait to hear clips of this beautiful guitar. A Beneteau in your hands is a thing of magic!

Beautiful pictures, Dustin, to be followed by serious playing I am sure. Lovely guitar shape, too, the combination of "classical hips" and modern cutaway is very cool.

Hi folks,

Thought I'd finish up the thread with a little sound clip I recorded yesterday of one of my favorite tunes. The guitar has opened up substantially and after slightly lowering the action and a micro truss rod turn it is really breathing and sounding like a much older and more open guitar! Really spectacular, immediate tone when you go up the neck.

I played my first gig with it last night and can confirm it's everything I needed in an updated performance guitar and I look forward to playing bigger stages with it in the future. The shorter scale and beefier neck make it much more friendly for long hours than my current Larrivee, admittedly. That one will stick around of course but more as a backup guitar during hot, humid days outside in the summer.

The tune here is one of my long-time favorites from Stephen Bennett's masterpiece album "Ten". Standard tuning with partial capo at the 4th fret allowing the 1st string to ring out permitting further exploration of the key of B.

It’s way different than any of the bigger models, as expected. Have you owned any of Marc’s OMs?

Dustin, Well I actually have never played a Benteau OM of any configuration. I have had many OMs in the past but now have settled for just one, a 2007 Collings OM (German/IRW) which had a 25.5" scale. I love the immediacy or velocity of sound from am OM which I don't find on the bigger body guitars I own. That's why I'll always have at least one at my disposal as long as I'm playing guitar. I can also attest to the nice things about a short scale OM. Back from 2003-2009 I played a short scale Collings OM (sitka/IRW) which I dearly loved. The short scale made playing much easier due to the lesser tension on the strings. I really like that for bluesy things where bending strings is useful for certain things. I do miss that guitar but still have a distinct memory of the sound and advantages of owning.
