Description

It’s hard to put this one down. Our latest brand new OM from Don Musser is a gorgeous example of what happens when you combine a tonewood dealer’s personal collection with their luthier chops: purity, clarity, and strength. Costa Rican Cocobolo back and sides paired with a tight-grain Sitka Spruce top and Honduran Mahogany bindings. Glassy nitro finish, 25 1/2” scale, Brazilian Rosewood bridge—this OM is a sight to see, and that goes double for hearing.
Don’s voiced the top for fingerstyle responsiveness and clarity. The 25.5” scale gives a bit more bite when you drop down into DADGAD and beyond. There’s a great string-to-string balance; the voice doesn’t favor any particular register, letting them all ring out evenly. We’d recommend this Musser OM for, well, everything.

With his many years of experience, Don Musser is able to build a brand new guitar that sounds like it’s 40 years old. The Sitka top on this one is already speaking volumes and you’ll want to hear what it has to say. Both warm and punchy and always articulate. I could play this one for days.
