2012 David Oddy 12 Fret – £2799
ON HOLD One of the UK’s finest luthiers, Oddy guitars are a well kept secret amongst serious acoustic players. This 12 fret guitar features an Engleman Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides, a Mahogany neck with slot headstock, Ebony pyramid bridge, and beautiful Abalone rosette and herringbone binding. 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 excellent condition, with a very comfortable feeling neck and good action. It has an LR Baggs M1 pickup fitted, and comes in a Hiscox flight case.
