This awesome Thomas OM50 is derived from the traditional Spanish guitar style and build with beautiful Hawaiian Koa and Moon Spruce. She is extremely well build and has a phenomenal voice. Sweet, delicate tone, open and responsive.
This Thomas OM50 is build with Beautiful premium figured Hawaiian Koa and Moon Spruce from the dense Spruce forests in the Italian Latemar region. Latemar is a relatively small but well-known mountain group in the Dolomites in northern Italy. Here, the old master luthiers Stradivari and Guarnieri got their extraordinary top wood. Koa’s tone profile blends the midrange of Mahogany with the top end of Maple. Moon Spruce features exceptional stiffness together with low density, the foundation of a great guitar sound. The basic structure of all Thomas Guitars, is made by employing the old Spanish method of using a solera mold. This classic construction mold locks in the neck angle and sets the height of the bridge. The unfinished neck is glued with the intended angle to the soundboard. Then the bent sides are glued with individual wooden blocks to the top, and finally the back is fitted. This method has great advantages both tonally and structurally and form the foundation of a guitar set up that prevents fret buzz and string slapping.
She offers punch, clarity, balance and versatility. Clear and reflective with a broken in sound and great note separation make this great for fingerstyle or strumming and flatpicking. On top of that the notes sustain endlessly. What a great guitar! Listen to a soundsample here:
