If you like the deluxe look of 42-style appointments but prefer mahogany tonally, this 2000 custom OM is for you. The tinted Adirondack spruce top is paired with some particularly beautiful mahogany on the back, sides and neck, braced with pre-war inspired advanced X bracing. The tone is exactly as warm and well-rounded as you could want from such a mahogany OM, and it's dressed to the nines in abalone purfling from body to headstock, with ivoroid binding, Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay with torch, and snowflake and diamond fret markers. Overall condition is excellent. Ships out in a Harptone hardshell.
