What We Think

Sometimes we find a particular recipe for a particular model from a particular manufacturer that we love so much, we just can't help but order one after another. This OM Vintage is one of those truly special combinations we've come to love, so much so, that this is the third one we've ordered; this time with a gorgeous Aged Tone Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top! Dana's sunburst finishes are second to none, glowing from within in an almost supernatural way with a sound that matches. Each note is distinct and clear while the harmonic complexity of the overtones create an unbelievably spacious sound. This guitar will go 10 rounds with any vintage piece you put it up against and wins be unanimous decision every time!

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

OM, 14 Fret 25.5” scale: You can think of the Vintage OM as a smaller version of our Dreadnought--or maybe it's the other way around. Because of its characteristic superb balance, clarity of voice, and sustaining top register, the OM is often thought of as the quintessential fingerstyle guitar. It's not surprising, though, that more than a few players appreciate these same characteristics not only for flatpicking but also for a variety of other applications. We scallop both sides of the X brace on our OM. This provides the” looseness” required in a smaller guitar to produce a clear, strong bass response, and power and projection that belies its size.

About Manufacturer

Bourgeois Guitars are defining the future of vintage tone, combining old-world hand-voicing techniques with modern innovations in design and materials. Built in a ca. 1850s mill in the industrial town of Lewiston Maine, master luthier Dana Bourgeois and his small team of highly skilled craftsman produce some of the finest steel-string instruments available today. 
 
Known for tonal excellence, meticulous craftsmanship and top-notch materials, they are played by six-string luminaries such as Bryan Sutton, Ricky Skaggs, Sean Watkins, Della Mae, the late Doc Watson and countless professional and nonprofessional enthusiasts. Bourgeois guitars have had a prominent role in the American steel-string guitar renaissance for more than two decades, helping shape acoustic music’s most recent rise in popularity.
