Bourgeois OMC Custom Bear Claw Spruce over Figured Myrtle
Positively stunning Bourgeois OMC Custom has just arrived at Heartbreaker Guitars. With a stunning Italian Bear Claw Spruce over a Master Grade Figured Myrtle, this guitar sings with endless sustain!
You can think of the OMC as a smaller version of the Bourgeois Dreadnought--or maybe it's the other way around. Because of its characteristic superb balance, clarity of voice, and sustaining top register, the OM is often thought of as the quintessential fingerstyle guitar. It's not surprising, though, that more than a few players appreciate these same characteristics not only for flatpicking but also for a variety of other applications. We scallop both sides of the X brace on our OM. This provides the” looseness” required in a smaller guitar to produce a clear, strong bass response, and power and projection that belies its size.The OM is also available as an OM Cutaway (OMC), 14 Fret 25.5” scale: True OM sound with extended playability, featuring Dana's original design. Or, if you prefer a shorter scale, as the OM, 14 Fret, 25”short scale: Exceptional balance and warmth, with “short scale” playability.
