1992 David Oddy OM – £2799

NEW ARRIVAL  One of the UK’s finest luthiers, David Oddy guitars are a well kept secret amongst serious acoustic players. This OM guitar is one of Oddy’s earliest models with serial number 33. It features an Engleman Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides, a Mahogany neck, Ebony bridge, beautiful Abalone inlays, and very unusual tortoiseshell top binding and rosette. The guitar offers good volume and projection but, more importantly, sounds wonderfully balanced and even across the sonic spectrum. Even the quietest passages sound clear and bell-like. Put through everything from gentle fingerstyle to fast picking, it performs supremely, with a detail and clarity most guitars aren’t capable of. The guitar is in good, well played condition, with a few bumps and bruises, and a very comfortable feeling neck and good action. The other unusual thing about this guitar is that it was owned by Alun Ashworth-Jones who designed and developed the Ashworth pickup, and it’s one of his pickups that’s fitted, combining an under saddle and a transducer system. The guitar comes in a Hiscox flight case.
