Description

Ken Jones brings an eye for detail, an ear for tone, and a touch for modern aesthetics to his builds—our latest Mountain Song Odalisque model is exquisite. Mexican Ebony (Katalox) back and sides with some dramatic figuring are here paired with a creamy German Spruce top in this 000-inspired body for crisp note definition and balance between the registers. The bottom end has a particularly sweet, warm pop to it that really fills out the voice. 12 frets to the body with a 25.4” scale strikes a fine balance between power and intimacy, and we found this Odalisque as happy in Open G or D as in Standard—as Paul would say, this one has a lot of gears for fingerstyle. A slim arm bevel and low profile heel, with the venetian cutaway, make for an effortless player experience, and EVO frets will keep you away from a fret dress for quite some time to come.
To be honest, get this one while you can. MSG guitars do not linger long at our shop.
