Beau Hannam OM, Brazilian Rosewood & Bearclaw Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


Luthier Beau Hannam has a fascinating and unique backstory among luthiers we see here at TNAG. Prior to building guitars, he was immersed in the visual fine arts, studying everything from painting to sculpture, and pulling inspiration from diverse influences, from the Renaissance era through the Deco and Nouveau movements. He trained in guitar building under Gerard Gilet of the Gilet School of Luthiery in Sydney, Australia, later working in his workshop. Now, Beau builds a select number of guitars each year from his workshop in Grand Junction, Colorado, crafting each one to the unique requests of his clients. This gorgeous OM sports a bearclaw spruce top and Brazilian rosewood back and sides, on a body that's slightly wider and deeper than many OMs for added sustain and power. Fingerstylists and strummers alike will delight in the rich, lush tone this guitar possesses, with a soundport adding even more enjoyment for the player.

Aside from one small finish ding along binding on the back treble side, this guitar is in excellent structural and cosmetic condition, with no fret wear or issues to note.
