Leo Buendia's OM is, like many, designed with versatility and balance in mind. But the playing experience you get from a Buendia is unique, in part due to the slightly larger body size (deeper and wider than a standard OM), the short 25" scale, and of course Leo's distinct touch and style. He says his OM "allows you to drive hard when you need to, and still keep all the mellow tones when played normally", and this is all the more true with an Adirondack spruce soundboard and koa back and sides. This guitar has a tone that is at times almost harp-like, with a surprising resonance quite unlike most other guitars. Clear singing trebles carry the melody while warm mids fill the chord and a strong but focused bass underpins. While it can handle the hard strum of a flatpick, the wide 2-1/4" string spacing makes it more suitable for fingerstylists looking to add a truly new voice to their arsenal.
A subtle green dominates the appointments, with dyed maple purfling and a custom patterned rosette, endgraft and headstock decoration adding an elevated touch. Condition is excellent, with just a little hazing in the finish on the side of the lower bout (bass side) and a stray nick on the other side where the body rests on the leg.
