(NEW) From the great Huss & Dalton in Staunton, VA, some of the best builders to ever do it, and definitely some of our absolute favorite friends in the music industry... we are THRILLED to present this 25th Anniversary commemorative Orchestra Model, replete with 45-style Paua pearl trim, thermally cured Adirondack spruce and old growth Brazilian rosewood from the collection of Walter Lipton. This guitar, as far as we are concerned, is the top of the mountain.
This absolutely gorgeous sounding OM might be the best to ever come through our doors. The voice is rich and complex, with uncanny clarity and sustain to die for. We can't imagine it sounding better, and there is no exaggeration in that statement. It strums, it picks, it fingerpicks... it is the total package. It is a prize.
As can be seen in the pictures, the aesthetics are as fancy as they come. 45-style means that shell adorns every edge of this instrument, from the rosette to the top border to the back border to the sides, and even around the heel. Is it a lot? Of course it is! But the visual statement cannot be denied. 45-style instruments are the rarest of the rare, and there is a dramatic amount of handwork to bring these into the world. This guitar is fully bound in flamed koa, and features a Floral Grace Vine fingerboard inlay by Jodie Davis. There are flourishes on the peghead overlay and on the wings of the bridge, and the tuners are engraved gold Waverly's. The fretwire is Jescar gold. Un-dyed bone nut, saddle and end pin, bone bridge pins with dot inlay.
Traditional OM specs include long scale length with 1 3/4" nut and 2 1/4" string spacing at the saddle. The fingerboard and bridge are ebony.
