Talking Guitar: Tom Sands

A year on since announcing our partnership with Tom Sands, he came back to the showroom to discuss all things Tom Sands Guitars. He touched upon his recent visit to Sonore Guitar Festival in Montreal, his illustrious Social Media presence, and his recent 'Shop Sessions' as well as his compelling upcoming builds.

We are very excited that Tom is building us an M model in the most stunning set of Brazilian Rosewood, shown in the interview here. This is Tom's equivalent of an OM, based upon the sublime Somogyi OM model. This will be paired with a Master Grade Moon Spruce Top.

Tom also brought 'The Family Tree' Model along with him. This is another M model which Tom has built, however this one is for his family, in memory of his grandfather whom was the reason for his beginning in woodwork.

Tom Sands Model M Acoustic Guitar, Brazilian Rosewood & Mastergrade German Spruce - £16,750.00 no VAT 

"When I was working with Ervin, I was always blown away by the sound he was able to get with the classic combination of Brazilian Rosewood and European Spruce. When I managed to source some gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood that has been seasoned for 40 years and had appropriate CITIES paperwork, Ben and I jumped at the opportunity to spec out a guitar together. This guitar will be a Model M - heavily informed by the Somogyi OM which I loved so much. I always refer to the Model M as the ‘Goldilocks Guitar’ - due to it’s ability to do a bit of everything. It’s all at once delicate and sweet, but still has plenty of oomph to surprise and delight."
