New offerings to the world of fine lutherie! EddieLee Brown is fresh on the scene and ready to make an impression with this 2015 acoustic. We have a modified OM shape which boasts a nicely paired set of Mahogany for the back and sides and a tight-grained Lutz Spruce top. All that Mahogany and Lutz yield a bright, punchy voice with lots of projection and a low-end that is tight and controlled. Brown's pulled out all the stops with gorgeous Abalone fretmarkers, headstock inlay, rosette, and bridge pin crowns, and a soundport for players' instant access to their tone. The fit and finish is pearl smooth, especially on the well carved neck. You'll find a variety of exotics tucked away in the appointments, from the African Blackwood bridge and bindings to the Bubinga backplate and rosette and Brazilian Cherry purfling lines on the top. In addition to all of those pretty woods, Brown has an intriguing take on the phrase "big, fat tone": he's added two weights to the sides of the lower bout, to increase the weight of the soundbox and reinforce the rigidity of the sides, creating a guitar with more projection and focused tone. We had the excellent opportunity to play his guitars both with and without the weights, and the difference was palpable; come and give it a go to see what we mean. This guitar comes with a new Guardian hardshell case.

"I like EddieLee's innovative flair--having played both his weighted and non-weighted bodies, I can feel the difference. The low-end is bigger, and the middle register seems more fleshed out. I think, in particular, this OM would sing with an aggressive attack." - Paul Heumiller
"This guitar sounds incredible. Perfectly balanced with lots of headroom. The trebles are sweet and the basses are full and controlled. The perfect all round guitar. The neck profile is very comfortable too." - Al Petteway
