What We Think

Perhaps the finest OM I've ever played.  Every note seems to presuppose its own melody.  The combination of the torrefaction process and, of course, the striking, large soundhole lend unprecedented open-ness, sustain, and sheer presence to this marvel of modern day craftsmanship.  Even the slightest bit of left hand vibrato-wiggle produces a stunning vocal-like effect where you can almost see the rippling waves of golden sound stretch out in front of you...I mean it sounds like they installed effects pedals in the thing!  I love how the Pao lends a distinctly dry coloration to the voice of the guitar while still summoning the rich, full lows and clean highs that you expect from rosewood of any kind.  Some guitars come through the shop that I can only play once lest I grow too attached...it's just best for both of us...but this OM won't be lonely long!  Call us up today and make the fastest friend of your life!
