Description

Featherweight build packs heavyweight tone. Our latest OM from Ray Kraut is a pale-topped knockout with Flamed Koa and Swiss Moonspruce—plays effortlessly, with fearsome tonal reserves waiting to be tapped. In short, we’re in love with this Kraut OM. Ray’s voiced this Swiss Spruce beauty for maximum responsiveness paired with an even temperament: from fret to fret and string to string, this Kraut remains balanced and clear. Open tunings are a dream on this machine, where the Koa back and sides lend a hint of dry woodiness that keeps clarity at the forefront of the voice. We tried and tried to make this guitar sound bad, but if there’s a flub note on this Kraut, we can’t find it. Weighing in at a scant 3.75lbs, it’s a study in fingerstyle finesse without parallel.

Wow. That’s the word that comes to mind. I can’t believe anyone builds a brand new guitar with this much energy. This guitar is a featherweight, and you feel it vibrate in your arms like a freight train. It has a wonderfully quick response, full treble strings and warmth in the bass to make it a complete guitar from top to bottom. I love everything about it.
