Though he may be a well-rounded luthier these days, crafting everything from nylon-string to electric guitars, Robert O'Brien got his start building in the classical guitar world with renowned Brazilian luthier Antonio Tessarin and Spanish luthier José Romanillos. His roots as a fine nylon-string builder show through on this standard model classical. Rich and resonant from low to high, the bass on this guitar is strong and commanding, while the trebles sing and sparkle above. The generously wide neck with its 2-1/8" nut width gives plenty of room for pulling off complicated right hand picking patterns, while the excellent set-up and playability make left hand execution easy, even for steel-string players. An ultra-thin French polish finish protects the woods while inhibiting vibration as little as possible.

The condition of this 2008 O'Brien is excellent, with no notable marks or dings in the finish. Its TKL soft case, though not pristine, is in good structural condition as well.
