A Brand New Kostal OMC Arrives
We recently previewed the arrival of a brand new OMC model from masterbuilder Jason Kostal, and we're delighted to let you know that it has now arrived in our UK showroom along with a custom-order MDW. Check out the unboxing of both of these guitars in the videos below:
It was a rare treat for us to be able to spec a guitar from Jason Kostal for our stock and, while we chose the woods on this OMC, we left it up to Jason to work on the theme for its decorations, and he most certainly did not disappoint!
From the gorgeous grains in the piece of Indian Rosewood that Jason chose for the guitar, through to the remarkable colours in Jason's signature segmented rosette and end graft.
We recently caught up with Jason before he shipped the guitar to us, to find out a little more about the build process for this instrument. You can read the interview here.
This guitar is in our UK showroom now and, while our showrooms are currently closed to the public during the Coronavirus pandemic, this guitar is available to purchase with free global shipping and our extended seven-day appraisal period as part of our 'Buy With Confidence' programme. Find out more about that here.

While the current lockdown is making it difficult to film our newly arrived instruments in action, luckily this isn't the first OMC in Indian Rosewood and German Spruce we have received from Jason Kostal. Of course, we know that no two guitars are the same, but this showcase of a previous model will certainly whet your appetite for what you can expect from our new OMC:
