Description: Acoustic Guitar - John Slobod Circa OM - MINT
John Slobod of Circa Guitars made this OM to perform well no matter what type of music is played on it. The cocobolo back and sides offer a unique low end that is not overly bright. John told me that this set of 1/4 sawn coco was the nicest black-stripe he had ever used. He paired it with a red spruce top from a batch of 5 tops that are among the stiffest, nicest sounding pieces of red spruce he had ever used. The top shows a bit of 'run-out' - but otherwise is exceptionally clean and even grained for red spruce. All braces are red spruce. All braces and bridge glued with #360 hide glue. The guitar is finished with nitro lacquer. Custom features included: Radial grain cocobolo rosette Cocobolo/maple top purfling Unbound ebony headplate Ebony binding on fretboard Mitered black/maple/black side purfling Bone bridge/end pins Premium Turtleworks pick-guard Light golden top toner 5 ply Cedar Creek case Specs: Nut 1-3/4 Bridge 2-1/4 Scale 25.4 Firm price is 6300 dollars + shipping. This is the nicest guitar I have ever owned but I have my eye on an expensive archtop so I am putting it up for sale. Write for pictures if you are interested. You wont find a nicer OM anywhere.
