What a beautiful guitar. Love the inlays and purfling!

Nice sound clips as well.

Congrats!

4 months old and it just keeps improving. The bass has fattened up nicely, to the point where it sounds just like a great OM should. The power and projection are all there. The mids and trebles are sweetening up over time, but they've been perfect since about 2-3 weeks in, so I guess that means they are getting perfecter. I've never played an OM I like more. Such is my faith in John after this guitar, and after having played many examples of his work over the years, that I have a 000-12 (Euro/maple) and an OM-18 (adi/mahogany) on the way. With the exception of Howard Klepper's work on my Schoenberg 000-12 and his OM-33, no other luthier building in the traditional Martin style has impressed me more.

Circa uses standard a nice Ameritage case, usually a bluish colored one, with black edges...
