Description

With a lively and opened up guitar in your hands, it feels like the sky’s the limit for what you can do, right? This 2005 Franklin OM fits that description to a T. From the soft V neck and slightly wider nut (1 13/16”), to the herringbone trim and gold Gotoh open gear tuners, this Franklin is as easy on the hands as it is on the eyes. It’s in excellent shape, with hardly a mark on her, and that’s especially impressive considering it’s almost 14 years old. This beauty comes in Indian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce, and is a steal of a deal if you’re looking for that Franklin tone without breaking the bank on a Brazilian Rosewood guitar. The top features a rear-shifted X brace, non-scalloped braces throughout, and an aged toner look that’s right at home in a vintage arsenal. This is an OM that lives up to its workhorse heritage, responding well to both picks and fingertips, and dips into altered tuning territory. We found it help tune well with the use of a capo, and the overall lightweight build (3lbs 14oz) meant we never got tired of playing this handsome Franklin.

This Franklin OM from 2005 is loud and strong and clear as only a well-played guitar can be. Super lightweight and energetic, it feels like one of those great 1930s Martins. Versatile enough for any genre, but it certainly loves the blues!
