Baleno Orchestra Model, Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany - NEW

(NEW) Chuck Baleno has never shied away from the idea of updating a classic, and this OM is a perfect example.  While it shares a silhouette with its forebears, the quality and craftsmanship are all Baleno!  

This lightweight orchestra model has a beautiful Adirondack spruce top and mahogany back/sides.  It has rosewood body binding and a three-ring rosette with curly koa accenting the center ring.  It has a compound radius ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge and ebony pins.  Baleno uses hot hide glue on all tone related bracing. 

The nut width is 1 3/4", string spacing at the saddle is 2 1/4" and the guitar has a long 25.34" scale length.  The neck is a comfortable modified V shape, and the frets are stainless steel, standard on Baleno instruments.  In addition to the compensation at the saddle, Baleno also goes the extra mile and compensates the nut, and as a result has some of the best intonating instruments in our store (or in any store!)  As usual, the fit and finish are exceptional.  

Chuck is Western Pennsylvania's luthiery treasure!  Find out what we've known for years now!  Includes TKL hard case.
