Ultra rare Guild Orpheum OM build by the Guild Custom Shop team under the supervision of the legendary luthier Ren Ferguson at the New Hartford (USA) workshop. This pretty OM is a tonemachine extraordinaire build with mastergrade Adirondack en Indian Rosewood, beautifully crafted and rich-sounding in all registers.
This Guild Orpheum OM is based on the golden age of U.S. acoustic guitar design and construction. Guild set out to build a pre-war guitar with that indescribable, but very appealing tone as Guild would have built them when they would have been around in the twenties and thirties. The hired Ren Ferguson to overlook the extremely limited production at their old New Hartford workshop in Connecticut. Thus, the Orpheus OM now ranks among the finest Guild auditorium-style guitars ever made. Using a hide glue construction, an Adirondack Red Spruce top with scalloped Adirondack bracing and solid Indian Rosewood back and sides, combined with a Genuine Mahogany neck produces a warm, balanced and articulate tone with rich bass and a particular sweet singing treble.
Premium features also include traditional hot hide-glue construction, a 20-fret Ebony fingerboard with pearl-dot inlays and 12” radius, elegant cream body binding, bone nut and a nitrocellulose lacquer neck finish. Other features include a tortoiseshell pickguard, pyramid-style ebony bridge with bone saddle and pins, Guild-logo Gotoh SE-700 open-back tuners with cream buttons, and deluxe hard-shell case. She is in high excellent condition with only some very minor dings and angel hair scratches. Fret work is very good and the K&K Mini Pure pickup system completes the package.
