2013 TJ Thompson 00-30, Brazilian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce
A piece of heaven from one of American lutherie’s greatest: this 2013 00-30 from T.J. Thompson. Brick-red Brazilian Rosewood back and sides with Adirondack Spruce top, a gorgeous tobacco sunburst, colorful marquetry trim and 12-fret neck; bespoke “flag” bridge and banjo tuners–a work of functional art. In true T.J. fashion, the unbound fingerboard utlizes bar frets, and the overall weight comes in right at four pounds. The finish has been removed from the back of the neck for an instantly familiar feel. This T.J. Thompson 00-30 is an heirloom instrument, the centerpiece of your lifetime collection.

2008 TJ Thompson OM-30, Brazilian Rosewood/Red Spruce
T.J. Thompson is revered for his repair and restoration work–and then there are his actual builds. A more comprehensive grasp of what a flattop can and should sound like, we haven’t seen. This 2008 OM-30 is nothing short of seraphic. Brazilian Rosewood back and sides with Adirondack Spruce top, 30-style appointments, V neck profile plus bar frets, even banjo-style tuners at the headstock.

2007 TJ Thompson OM-45, Brazilian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce
A piece 45 heaven from the master himself. Here we’ve landed a lifetime OM from Mr. T.J. Thompson, dressed to the nines with 45-style treatment throughout and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides plus Adirondack Spruce top. What more need be said? T.J. is centered in the traditional Martin style of building, with this 2007 OM-45 playing and feeling right at home alongside the prewar originals. Bar frets, V neck, gorgeous dark Abalone throughout–and a touch of modernity with a Schertler pickup system. With an upgraded Karura flight case, this T.J. Thompson OM-45 is safe and sound when not in use. But let’s be honest: this is one guitar that’s begging to be played, and who are we to say no?
