An elegant offering from Bill Tippin, this 1999 OM-T features a slightly deeper body and Bill's famous Salmon Crate Sitka top, which has the headroom of Adirondack and sounds terrific whether played fingerstyle or with a pick. The tone is quite full but focused. Before sending us his guitar to sell, our consignor had this instrument inspected, polished, and re-fretted by Bill Tippin. It's in fabulous condition (hard to believe it is over 20 years old) and an outstanding instrument from one of America's premier luthiers.
