The Preston Thompson OM has a superb responsiveness and a lovely sweetness in tone. The relatively slimmer body depth gives players a quickness to the sound delivered while also delivering the string to string and bass to treble balance these models are renowned for. The OM (Orchestra Model) a 25.4” scale length, the same scale length as dreadnought guitars. The longer OM scale length generally gives these instruments a little more punch and volume, making the OM perfect for players that both flat pick and fingerpick.
Featuring Madagascar Rosewood and a Red spruce (Adirondack) tops (which was chosen for tap tone and stiffness) this OM is designed using advanced X brace placement, hand graduated top thickness, pre-war hand carved scalloped braces, nitro-cellulose lacquer finishes and time tested design features such as dovetail neck joints.
