A startlingly beautiful OM out of Pernambuco back & sides and European spruce. The builder has this to say about the Pernambuco: "Pernambuco, sometimes called "The Music Tree" in its native Brazil, is unexcelled as a choice for guitar backs and sides. Its elasticity, low damping, and high speed of sound transmission have made it the wood of choice for violin bows for centuries. Guitar sets are only occasionally available. It lends a unique clarity and focus to a guitar's sound in all registers without harshness in the treble or boominess in the bass." Some choice details of this guitar are ivoroid peghead veneer, delicate multi-colored wood purflings made by Klepper, Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons, flamed koa back stripe and an amazing, explosive tone.
