Description

Nick kukich has always impressed us with these Franklin guitars, they are superbly voiced with a wide open sound that just envelopes the player. Franklins are in high demand, as soon as we get one in you can count on them heading back out again in no time. This OM in German Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood, has aged beautifully and will almost vibrate off of your lap. It is just that responsive and ready to make music! Once Again Nick Kukich proves why his guitars are so sought after, this is a killer guitar that needs a great home!

This is a great Franklin, The tone is warm and inviting, it kind of reminds me of the fall season. I really enjoyed playing some bouncing jazz numbers on this one, but as usual with a Franklin, it can handle anything with ease.
 
One of the nicest OM style guitars I've played. It has the smaller neck profile that many people prefer, especially if they use a flat pick for the most part. The tone is clear and balanced and the guitar is very responsive.
