What We Think

This one purrs like a tiger 

The short scale allows for effortless playability and a liveliness that will have your fingers dancing ecstatically across the fretboard

With fingers, it's strong and defined

Every note is in its own postal code

With a flat-pick, it rings like a woody bell in a forest steeple 

I really can't remember getting this much tone out of a guitar with such little effort 

This guitar is an understated miracle 

The few, tasteful cosmetic upgrades send it into the stratosphere :)

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

The Jumbo OM, or JOM, is an original body style developed by Dana in the late 80's, in response to players' requests for a mid-sized guitar with the balance and clarity of an OM but with a bigger presence. The idea was simple: Start with the OM outline, enlarge it a bit, play around with the curves and deepen the sides. The result is a wonderfully versatile guitar; larger than an OM, smaller than a Dreadnought, capable of handling almost any playing style you can imagine, and equally capable of operating in solo or ensemble situations. Also available as the JOMC, with Dana’s original cutaway.
