Just arrived - Gaffney OMc Cocobolo and Engelmann Spruce!

Julian Gaffney is about to complete his apprenticeship at Ervin Somogyi's workshop in Oakland California.

This OM will be one of the last guitars to feature his apprentice label and it is very special!

Superb Engelmann Spruce...

with dramatic Cocobolo.

A truly sublime OM.

You can see it in action here!

Julian Gaffney is a very talented young luthier who cut his teeth at the Galloup school of guitar building before working for Roger Sadowsky for many years. His craftsmanship is beautiful to look at and his instruments have an immediate response and exceptional musicality that makes them a joy to play. And you can learn more about Julian Gaffney and his work in this Talking Guitar interview!

This beautiful OMc has just sold but we have reserved a number of build slots with Julian as his waiting list is growing fast which could fast-track your bespoke Gaffney guitar. For more information or to book an appointment please get in touch at!
