Whenever you encounter a builder who is as talented a player in his own right as Wayne Henderson, you always know you're going to be in for something special. A legendary luthier whose sought-after guitars have ended up in the hands of everyone from Doc Watson to Eric Clapton, his dreadnoughts in particular have made a splash among bluegrass guitarists. But Wayne himself is an accomplished fingerpicker, so it should come as no surprise that he can build a stellar OM.

This gorgeous Brazilian rosewood and Adirondack spruce OM is dressed to the nines in a lush sunburst, ivoroid binding, 42-style abalone and MOP appointments, and multi-color back strip. Brazilian rosewood is a great match for the focus and balance of the OM design. From bass to treble, there's a crispness on the initial attack of each note before it blooms with a sweet sustain. The Adirondack spruce top ensures plenty of dynamic headroom, giving you about as much volume and power as you can get without switching to a D-28. Condition couldn't be much cleaner, with only the lightest superficial marks in the finish giving away its pre-owned status.
