Description

Well, this is a first for us: we’ve never had a Mountain Song Odalisque come up for sale on the preowned market before! That alone should speak to the quality of this instrument, but humor us with a more thorough treatment (we do like talking about guitars, after all).


Dramatically figured Claro Walnut back and sides, Carpathian Spruce top, the interlocking rosette that Ken Jones has perfected, arm and rib bevels, Cosmo Black Gotohs—the list goes on. The voice is balanced between quick trebles and a warm lower mid response; the bass is focused. Responds well to a light touch, and if you dig in a bit the projection ramps up a lot. A natural choice for fingerstyle in standard tuning, DADGAD, or beyond.


Ken recently went over this 2013 Odalisque and gives it a clean bill of health. Fit and finish remains flawless. This is a rare opportunity to own a rare bird; who knows the next time another Mountain Song Guitar will be available?

I love the voice, very inspirational. Any guitar that makes me want to keep playing on and on has aced the test in my book!
 
Ken Jones' Mountain Song Guitars Odalisque is one of the best fingerstyle guitars I've ever played. It has beautiful woods and a perfect neck shape and size. The tone is balanced and clear with lots of sweetness in the high end and a nice controlled bass. I would buy it right now if I could. I love it.
