Details

A variation on their small jumbo-sized F model, the FM model has "a reduced body depth over a standard F model, [and is] voiced to project bright clean lead lines or fingerpicking runs with extra emphasis on the lower mids. The perfect guitar to cut through the mix." With a soundboard of warm and articulate Sitka spruce, they've utilized some unusual and increasingly rare ancient bog oak for the back and sides. Locally sourced in the British Isles, many luthiers have started using the tonewood as it has a weight ratio similar to tropical hardwoods. It won't be available forever, though, so now's your chance to snap one up while you can. With the set-up and full-bodied voice to tackle alternate tunings and both fingerstyle and flatpicking with aplomb, this guitar has incredible clarity and nuance.

We're unsure of the exact year this guitar was built, but judging by the condition and the rectangular label, it's quite recent. The condition is excellent, with no marks or blemishes to note.
