Apprenticing to legendary builder Ervin Somogyi is a goal to which many luthiers aspire, but only the select few are chosen to do so. In this guitar, we can see exactly why Ray Kraut is one of the hand-picked elite builders to have gone through Ervin's training. Every aspect of this Amazon Rosewood and European Spruce OM Cutaway is crisp, clean, and perfectly executed. Yet for all the work that goes into its build quality and aesthetics, this one is about tone first, and everything else is an afterthought. Reactive and balanced, it responds splendidly to both the lightest touch and the heaviest hand. Notes ring out like chimes, distinct and separate, yet whole and full. An incredible build from an outstanding luthier.

2009 Kraut OM -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"This guitar is a DADGAD king! For that matter, any of you who love to play fingerstyle in altered tunings are going to love this one. The Amazon Rosewood is stunning and Ray's minimalist rosettes are known the world round. A great looking and sounding guitar." - Paul Heumiller

"The frequency response on this instrument is amazing. It's like holding a piano in your lap with its rich bass and powerful trebles. It's a great guitar for low tunings as well." - Al Petteway
