What we think:

How could a guitar feel so free and so stable simultaneously? This one really blows my mind. I do NOT want to stop playing. I feel unworthy of even trying to articulate what I'm hearing...

All the notes are so well-balanced and defined I can practically SEE them. It's got a nice, bright punch and a warm mane of overtones. It sounds huge and it's very easy to get a variety of tones alternating between finger, nail , and flat-pick. This could feasibly be an "everything" guitar. On second thought, it IS an everything guitar.

Asthetically, SCGC called all the right shots, from the even-top grain to the creamy, off-white binding that extends all the way around the headstock and back. The back is beautifully striped, dark rosewood that really sings. I can just imagine Richard tapping THIS piece and thinking, "that's a good one."

To quote one of my customers who received a SCGC OM about a year ago, "This is the guitar I've heard in my dreams."

S/N: 4531 is likewise, a dream conceived.

Description:

We present the Orchestra Model as a small-body guitar with a very powerful sound. The balance of the OM favors the bass to midrange, inviting comparison to a small dreadnought. The OM has become a favorite of fingerstylists and players preferring the comfort of a smaller body that delivers considerable power. This model is our most versatile and popular guitar.
