Description

Serious powerhouse on the scene; hard to put this beauty down for any length of time. Simon Fay knocked it right out of the park with this OM from 2009—lively and energetic, crisp with great pop!, fires right out of the soundhole. This one takes to a flatpick like a natural, and has enough sensitivity to respond great under fingers as well. This exemplifies the attributes of the OM, namely, well-rounded and equally at home in every setting. Additionally, the setup is silky smooth, and Fay pulled out gorgeous tonewoods to dress it up. Flamed Claro Walnut back and sides (elements of crisp and woody tone) with Sinker Redwood on top (and the warmth and color that fills out the rest of the voice), plus Snakewood bindings and a soundport for creature comforts. The sides are double thicknessed with Zebrawood interiors, and Simon braced the Redwood top with his unique T bracing pattern.
