Description

We are delighted to be representing Brad Nickerson's latest instruments. Brad and Dream Guitars owner Paul Heumiller go way back and Paul's long been a fan of Brad's work. This OM Cutaway has blown us away, it's voice is so balanced and it nearly plays itself. The rosewood/spruce body offers a more open, modern fingerstyle voice without straying too far from tradition. The Walnut neck blends beautifully into the rosewood body and the burled Walnut headplate beautifully accents the Nickerson headstock shape. A class act, that really has the tone...

The first guitar of Brad's I ever sold was a cutaway OM back in the early '90s and I still remember that guitar today. This one has made the same impression on me. It's very articulate and clear but also has stunning overtones and color. The body shape is super comfortable and the neck plays to perfection. Brad is an outstanding builder so it's no surprise this is an outstanding OM. I'd compare this to any OM costing twice the price.
 
Brad Nickerson has managed to put it all together on this one. The tone is perfectly balanced and comfortable to the ear. Well done.
