Two Å-OMs for our bespoke clients are on the bench right now over in Ted Åstrand's Gothenberg, Sweden workshop.
"The Å-OM is my interpretation of the perfect midsize guitar. It has a lower bout width of 385mm, slightly larger than a standard OM and a smaller upper bout for better balance and comfort. It is built for maximum responsivness and is a great fingerstyle guitar. Even thou it’s built light and to be responsive it can be formed to suit any style of music and your personal playing style."
One is crafted of Brazilian rosewood and European spruce, while the other is a Madagascar rosewood and moon spruce model. Check out the progress of each build below!
