What We Think

When our friend James at Bourgeois let us know this one was available, we couldn't say "yes" fast enough!  Dana's signature models are as widely known for their utter finesse and perfection as Dana himself is known for his fondness of OMs, old ones in particular.  The result is what you'd expect--this guitar looks, plays, and sounds like a love letter from a craftsman at the top of his game to a legendary design (a '31 OM-18, in this case) that inspired a lifetime of worldclass work.  Clear, organic, and impossibly balanced, this lightweight, completely torrefied OM challenges the notion that there's no such thing as a truly versatile guitar.  Everything you play just springs to life, regardless of style.  Bravo!
