Pre-Sold‼ G W Barry OM Cutaway Bearclaw Adirondack Top, 2020

Pre-Sold‼ G W Barry OM Cutaway Bearclaw Adirondack Top, 2020

Here is a brand new, pre-sold G W Barry OM cutaway model with a Bearclaw Spruce top, demonstrating Barry’s great skill in guitar building. Quality Adirondack Spruce is hard to come by… the elusive “bear-claw” feature present in this example is rare, to say the least. The stiffness exhibited by it allows for a top with a much higher “threshold” of volume and tone. Dynamics are at the heart of this choice, retaining detail for both lower and higher attack styles.

Martin 000-28 Steel String Guitar

Martin 000-28  Steel String Guitar

The Martin 000-28 is a guitar delivering bold and complex tone in a package with timeless style. The 000-28 is a small-bodied guitar with a tight waist. This smaller body shape works really well for players with a light to medium touch, as you don’t have to drive the top as hard to produce tone. The classic pairing of Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood sides and back on the Martin 000-28 produces a rich and full-bodied tone with plenty of complex overtones. The x bracing pattern of the top is scalloped which removes some mass and allows the top to vibrate more increasing volume and bass response.
