Kraut OM Custom Acoustic Guitar, Madagascar Rosewood & European Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


When building a guitar, master luthier Raymond Kraut looks to inspire players with a “single unified aesthetic entity”, and this pre-owned Kraut OM Custom is exactly that. Its European Spruce top and Madagascar back and sides pair perfectly to create a tonal balance that is dynamic and articulate. Kraut’s goal is to create an instrument that pulls inspiration out of a player through a symbiotic relationship of body style and appointments. The ornate appointments found throughout the guitar, such as its custom wood rosette, Madagascar Rosewood peg head veneer, as well as its Manzer Wedge cutaway body style and fanned fret Ebony fretboard create an instrument that is an extension of the player, drawing expression out of a player for an experience that is instinctual, sensitive, and responsive. 

It is important to note that this pre-owned Raymond Kraut OM Custom had a top crack that was professionally and meticulously repaired by Max Spohn under the supervision of Raymond Kraut. The crack was flawlessly repaired, and does not have any effect on the sound or playability of this instrument. For an in-hand description of this guitar, feel free to reach out and we’ll be happy to answer any questions.
