Description

Michael Bashkin has made quiet a stir in recent years making a name for himself with his beautiful style, masterful craftsmanship and rich, resonant tone. This guitar is just stunning, there are many little details that might go unnoticed such as the aged Madagascar Rosewood, the quality of the top, it's Master Grade German and sounds like it, the X-braced back that enhances the fullness, the doubled sides that empower projection, the use of hide glue for all braces and the carbon fiber reinforced neck insuring the stability of this beauty for years to come. We love the tone of this one, it's very vibrant and the sound seems to rush out of the guitar, in a hurry to become music. If you are seeking a great OM with a bit more style and originality, this is for you.

Michael Bashkin is one of the good guys in the guitar business, very likable and passionate about music and guitar making. It comes through in his guitars, you can tell it was made with passion. This Placencia OM is terrific, very lively and expressive with warm, rich Madagascar/German tone that is complex and endearing. There is plenty of warm bass, captivating mids and shimmering highs. It's all there. This is sure to satisfy the player seeking that OM balance, but with that extra something special.
 
The tone on this guitar is sweet and clear with lots of overtones and the neck feels really great. Michael continually impresses me.
