This guitar brings together two top sellers from our shop: Our bestselling guitar is the Larrivee OM-40, and our bestselling Taylor is the all-Mahogany 522 12-fret. So when Larrivee told me they'd be building some all-Mahogany 12-fret OM-40s, I jumped at the chance.
I find the tonal profile of this guitar quite a bit different than the standard OM-40: Mahogany tops tend to compress things toward the mids, and this guitar is no exception. With strong, dark mids and a chunky low end brought to you courtesy of its 12-fret build, this guitar feels like a blues cannon.
