Description

Playing this guitar is like sleeping in on Sunday morning. Our 2008 Franklin OM with Brazilian Rosewood and German Spruce has a lively voice that doesn’t take much nudging to sing, and when it does the tones that come belting out of this soundhole are clear as birdsong and rich like an extra spoonful of honey in your tea.


Fit and finish is as top notch as we’ve come to expect from Franklin Guitars, and this set of Brazilian is nothing to scoff at! Faint black silking between chocolate-dark grain lines. Herringbone trim, Rosewood bindings, and gold Waverly tuners for a touch of elegance.


We strongly recommend this Franklin for any player, but fingerstylists in particular. Handled dropped tunings like DADGAD and Cadd9 like a champ; string-to-string balance is superb. Trebles have a focused attack without sounding brittle, and there’s a pocket of overtones in the upper mids that’ll really flesh out your slow, spacious pieces.

A fine example of the OM ideal: balanced, responsive, easy to play, and fun!
 
These are great guitars for folks that like traditional styling and sound. Great feel and response.
