(NEW) Baleno Instruments Orchestra Model, Torrefied Adirondack Top, Mahogany B/S – $3095

(NEW) Here is another fantastic new “cooked top” guitar from Chuck Baleno, of Export, PA. Baleno’s mahogany OM has everything we love in a vintage example: light build, hide glue construction, balance, projection, dryness… but it also benefits from some modern luthiery practices like a full bolt-on neck joint, torrefied Adirondack top (for a more played in, open sound right out of the box) and compensated bone nut and saddle for impeccable intonation up and down the fingerboard. Baleno’s fit and finish are as good as any in the business.

This guitar has ebony parts (fingerboard, bridge, pins), stainless steel frets, rosewood binding and a 1 3/4″ nut with 2 1/4″ string spacing at the saddle. All Baleno guitars come with a hardshell case and lifetime warranty to the original owner.

There is simply no better value in an American-made, hand built guitar.
