Description

We were fortunate enough to meet Benjamin Paldacci at the Woodstock Invitational last year in 2015, and this year Paul was able to take home an OM from Benjamin after the Santa Barbara show.

What a find! This OM is brand new, shining like a diamond at high noon, with a jaw-dropping set of Malaysian Blackwood back and sides and Carpathian Spruce top. From the smooth contour of the neck to the graceful swell of the lower bout, this guitar is a phenomenal example of lutherie at its finest. Of course, looks alone do not make a guitar; it's got to have a sound to match. Paldacci has more than met the challenge: the voice is somewhere between a choir and a church organ, with an immensely colorful and present tone.

When you put finger (or pick) to string, this Paldacci responds instantly with a full and articulate voice. The treble strings ring clearly and with energy, poised for play, but are well-balanced with the mids and the bass register, itself a fierce and energetic presence. Played in standard or DADGAD, this OM offers definition, depth, and breadth; in a word, angelic.

This was an amazing find at Santa Barbara. From the aesthetics to the voice, this Paldacci takes center stage. And it's set up well for both fingerstyle and flatpicks--a feat many builders attempt, and few achieve. I can't wait for the next one.
 
This is an amazing guitar and is incredibly well-built and designed. I instantly fell in love with it. It gives back more than you give it, which is what I always look for in a good guitar.
