Description

Mervyn Davis offers all the playability of electric, but in an acoustic package that packs a punch. This is his newly redesigned SmoothTalker OM model, featuring African Kiaat body and a Swiss Spruce top. The body of the instrument is essentially a clamshell that can be easily disassembled, has an adjustable neck angle to keep the setup precisely where you want it, and comes with an L.R. Baggs Element pickup system installed to carry you into amplified territory with plug-n-play ease; note the volume knob integrated into the bass side lower bout. These SmoothTalkers have a very quick and woody attack, and play like grass fed butter.
