2018 Circa OM Madagascar Rosewood/German
This gorgeous build is a perfect blend of prewar tone and modern playability and aesthetic. John Slobod is a master at pairing the dry midrange tone found in golden-era style Martin guitars with a classy, clean look that is all his own. Players, collectors and fellow luthiers alike have celebrated his level of craftsmanship for decades now and this build is a perfect example of why. He has built guitars for Tony McManus, Al Pettaway , Stephen Bennett and many other well known players. This extraordinary OM oozes with that golden era tone, with those fat trebles and great punchy midrange and the perfect amount of tight focused bass. It’s in mint condition.
