Here we have a wonderful OM in Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood from Nick Kuckich at Franklin Guitars. Folks, this is an OM designed with great tunes in mind, across a variety of genres: Bluegrass licks are sharp and hang in the air, just as a delicate fingerstyle waltz opens up across all the registers. Responding equally easily to flatpicks as fingertips, the C profile neck is smooth like butter, and the narrower nut makes fretting effortless. Beautifully balanced with a quick response and plenty of midrange punch, this one is fully opened up and ready for the next generation to enjoy it's musical gifts. Additionally, the Brazilian used is absolutely outstanding--the kind we just don't see much anymore, with straight grain and stunning spider webbing. When we think of the definitive OM guitar, it's clear this Franklin doesn't fall far from the tree, and we fell in love with it within minutes.

"I've never met a Franklin guitar that I didn't love. Nick has an incredible knack for coaxing beautiful, balanced tone from every guitar he builds, and this OM holds true to form. The voice is so open and supple, yet it's got a terrific snap to the mids and plenty of chime--much like the great pre-war OM's from another maker. This one's been well-loved, with typical play wear, but is structurally sound in every way. It has a new bridge with plenty of exposed saddle height and excellent action and playability. And if you're still not convinced, check out the photos of the Brazilian back and sides--whew!" - Paul Heumiller
"This guitar has all of the vibes of a vintage Martin OM, and even feels and sounds very much the same. It's a great all-around guitar that could be used for strumming or picking." - Al Petteway
