New Gaffney OM Cutaway Arrives

The arrival of any new guitar is always a special occasion here at The North American Guitar, but especially when it is a guitar built by the exceptional master builder, Julian Gaffney.

Former apprentice to 'the Godfather of Modern Lutherie' Ervin Somogyi, Julian has just completed a stunning OM cutaway which takes the influence of his mentor and combines it with his own unique approach to incredible effect.

This gorgeous OMc features an exquisite set of Palo Escrito for its back and sides along with a Swiss Moon Spruce top, decorated with Ebony binding and tapered back strip.

The top features a quite incredible segmented Abalone rosette, while the headstock has Julian Gaffney's wonderfully unique design and a Palo Escrito veneer.

This is the first new Julian Gaffney guitar we have had in our showroom for a number of years, and we really don't anticipate this one hanging around for long.

Our very own Brian Love couldn't resist getting hands on with this quite extraordinary instrument.
