Description

Here is a wonderful custom Michael Bashkin Multiscale OM, Placencia. Crafted from absolutely stunning quilted Mahogany and Italian Spruce, this guitar is a eye-catcher. The side soundport, custom rosette and amber side markers that capture light, it's got all the nice details you could want.

The voice is focused and dense. The trebles are full and round in attack. The bass is warm and full. This is not a strummer's guitar, but fingerstylists will love the oboe like trebles. The multiscale is a subtle blend of 25" and 25 1/2" scales so it's very accessible but will make drop D and DADGAD work as they should. The short treble scale makes for easy playability as well.

I like the round attack on this guitar. It's full and rich, particularly in the trebles. The multiscale frets allow for easy play, and also supports tunings like Drop D and DADGAD very well. The woods are spectacular, as the pictures show. Another top notch Bashkin.
 
I love Michael Bashkin's guitars and this one is a perfect example of what makes them great. The design and appointments are very elegant and the tone is pure and focused, exactly what's desired for a fingerstyle guitar.
