Buendia OM, Brazilian Rosewood & Moon Spruce



Argentinian born and California-based luthier Leo Buendia crafted this exquisite Brazilian rosewood OM for our customer through the Bespoke service. Taking his balanced and articulate OM design, he implemented a multi-scale fan fret configuration to boost the bass while keeping the sweet and mellow trebles, and a Florentine cutaway was added to increase accessibility. He paired this incredible set of Brazilian rosewood with a moon spruce top. Each note pops out clearly with a clean attack—that pianistic rosewood effect—and sustains with a bell-like bloom. Visually, his appointments aren't flashy or bright, but are impressive for their delicacy. The carved rosette and end graft, and the offset headstock with its red inlay are just gorgeous to behold.

While this guitar isn't for sale, we still wanted to show off not just Leo's incredible work, but the potential of the Bespoke process as well. Be sure to check out the demo below, and reach out if you'd like to learn more about commissioning your own custom Buendia guitar!
