We’ve been selling their “L-OO” CROSSROADS model with such enthusiasm since they introduced it several years ago – very spartan and traditional in appearance, and in all the excitement for that “new” model, this classic (Martin-style) OO “parlor” guitar has taken a bit of a back seat, so we decided to go big and order this OO with COOKED maple and COOKED Red Spruce top. WOW! It’s loud, warm, bluesy, lush, and loaded with “stuff”.
Features include a short scale, 12 frets to the body, pyramid bridge, SOLID headstock, 1 and 3/4″ nut width, 2 and 5/16″ saddle spacing, herringbone rosette, rosewood body binding…
But the sound! It’s got a THERMALLY-CURED (“cooked”) Adirondack spruce top andTHERMALLY-CURED (“cooked”) Sugar MAPLE back and sides. It sounds OLD, it sounds bold, oh boy it sounds good!
