We are delighted to receive this stunning OM from Australian-born, Canada-based luthier G.R. Bear.

This OM model features Padauk for the back and sides with a Lutz Spruce top with a Lutz Carbon Falcate bracing. The Mahogany neck features a Macassar Ebony fingerboard with 12-frets to the body, but the Florentine cutaway offers excellent access to the upper frets.
The Padauk theme continues with the bridge and rosette, while the guitar is decorated with black dyed Maple and Sycamore purfling. Tonally, this guitar offers a wonderful balance with the added sweetness of a 12-fret neck join, and has plenty of headroom for flatpicking and strumming.
