What We Think

Bourgeois' OMC design is desirable to begin with for its power, precision, and playability.  This particular serial number is in a special class of its own--nuanced voicing, capable of all sorts of inflections, from bass to treble, feel-it-in-your-bones resonance from the first note, and a full but well-behaved overtone content that embellishes thoughtful playing while never encumbering more agile passages.  The previous owner, in addition to taking very, very good care of this guitar, was also gracious enough to install the superlative Anthem SL.  Fingerpickers, it just doesn't get much better!  From Country Blues to Calypso to Classical, you'll be hard up to find a style that this OMC can't tackle with unusual ease--there's a reason the folks at Bourgeois call this model "the Soloist"!

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

"Many years ago, Eric Schoenberg dreamed about having an OM with a cutaway styled after the Selmer Maccaferri guitar. I drew up something that he liked and started building, but found that I wasn't able, at the time, to make such a tight bend in the side! So I gave up and substituted the much rounder version that I still use today." The OM is already a small guitar. It's unique sound results from the ratio between it's 25.5" scale length, the surface area of its soundboard, and the volume of it's air cavity. The addition of a cutaway, therefore, is no small consideration. Harmonizing beautifully with the classic curves of the original OM outline, Dana's solution offers three additional frets of accessibility while minimally altering the OM's critical proportions. The standard OMC with a European spruce top is a fingerpicker's dream. (Sitka and Adirondack spruce tops are also offered as popular options.) The OMC is simply and elegantly appointed with East Indian Rosewood back and sides, a wood rosette, Short patterned Squares and diamonds inlay, Ebony pyramid bridge, tortoiseshell binding and gold Waverly tuners. Sean Watkins, of Nickel Creek, used his Bourgeois OMC to record most of the cuts on his CD, Let It Fall. The solo guitar piece, "Cloudbreak", is an excellent example of what the OMC is all about. An audio clip of "Cloudbreak" can be found on the Let It Fall page of the website, www.sugarhillrecords.com. Check it out! Except as noted, all Bourgeois models include the following features: 25.5" Scale Length, One piece Mahogany Neck, Bone Nut & Saddle, Ebony Fretboard & Bridge, High Gloss Body and Satin Neck Finish, Mother of Pearl Bourgeois headstock inlay, Bourgeois Premium Tortoiseshell style pickguard, Ivoroid Bridge and Ed Pins, Deluxe Hardshell Case and a Limited Lifetime Warranty. A variety of optional tonewoods, appointments, hardware and finishes are also available.
