We are happy whenever we get in a Franklin guitar. There's a great reason why John Renbourn, Woody Mann and so many other top fingerstylist own Franklin guitars. Nick Kuckich has an uncanny ability to create the 'old' sound we all yearn for in every guitar he makes. This Franklin OM features German Spruce and old and straight Brazilian Rosewood, the kind we wish we still had to build with. It's #123, which has to mean something! It sure has a lot of mojo! We are all hoping someone buys it before Paul or Al does!

1978 Franklin OM -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Here's a great handmade OM from Nick Kuckich. I spoke to Nick about this one and he declared it was back when they were really handmade without even a jig. I love that! It sure has a lot of tone and a big, open voice. This one rivals any old Martin I've ever played and is sure to inspire anyone lucky enough to own it. It's the kind of guitar that will become a part of you. " - Paul Heumiller

"This Franklin guitar is as close to a vintage Martin OM as you can get in feel and sound. The tone is punchy and clear and it's very versatile. Great instrument." - Al Petteway
