A 2009 OM from Ray Kraut? Yes, please! This one is among the finest fingerstyle guitars on the market. The voice is equal parts cannon and serenade, with rich, rolling basses that fill out the tone and a flawless string-to-string balance that keeps the voice even and articulate for both aggressive and delicate attacks. The Brazilian Rosewood of the back, sides, fretboard, and bridge is drop your jaw gorgeous, not to mention the creamy, tight-grained German Spruce top--a quick peek in the soundhole reveals how Ray is able to make such a loud and projective guitar: both the back and top are delicately braced with a series of Xs that maximize both plates' ability to vibrate as freely as possible. The effect is two-fold: first, the projection and sustain are fearsome, and second, the middle register has a fully-developed warmth and presence that gives the overall voice a complex and expressive character.

With such dynamic bracing and a Somogyi-style wide saddle and scalloped nut, this Kraut fits firmly in the contemporary fingerstyle guitar camp, and the addition of the pinless bridge is a further improvement to Ray's unified aesthetic ideal for his designs. Take it from us: this is a guitar worth playing.

2009 Kraut OM -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"DADGAD never sounded so sweet. I love how big a voice this guitar has, and the quick response. Ray's put together a fine instrument for fingerstylists of a variety of persuasions." - Paul Heumiller

"A great guitar for both strumming and fingerpicking. It's also very nicely built." - Al Petteway
