This Thompson OM-EIA is a gem. Built with time tested designs and construction methods, she offers beautiful tone and enjoyment. 

The Preston Thompson OM-EIA has a gorgeous Adirondack Red Spruce top and braces as well. The bracing pattern is advanced X and Pre-war scalloped. Back and sides are wonderful Indian Rosewood.  She comes with pre-war style 28 appointments and a slim gentle V-shape neck shape. She brings an amazing tone to the table: delicate, dynamic All that being said, the main appeal of this guitar is its amazing tone.

She has a superb response and a sweet, round character. The relatively shallow body provides that fast response, and has the added benefit of a great balance of bass to treble. This Orchestra Model has a 25.4 inch scale length. This longer scale gives it a little more punch and volume making this model perfect for guitarists who like flatpicking as well as fingerpicking.

Noted for their power and immediate, responsive voice, Preston Thompson Guitars pay tribute to the best American made instruments from the 1930s. This beauty lives up to that claim. She is in near mint condition.
