  • Comments: A couple of years back, while visiting one of the local mills, I came across some gorgeous Wisconsin Cherry with substantial Sapwood and very interesting grain patterns. I have often wondered what Cherry would sound like used as a tonewood. This wood seemed like a once in a lifetime opportunity, so we bought as much as we could fit in the car and headed home.
    I have been observing, admiring, and collecting the guitars of Josh House since the first guitar [which I bought] arrived about a year and a half ago. So I picked a couple of the best sets of this rare and beautiful Wisconsin Cherry and sent them off to Josh. What you see before you is the first House OM featuring the amazing wood combination of Cherry and Cedar with a figured Ziricote fretboard [the pictures don’t do it justice] and bridge to match…. And quite un-like anything I have ever heard! While it does have plenty of the characteristic House warmth, the lows on this one sound like a finely aged grand piano. The highs are crisp and melodic and the mids are silky and smooth. Josh has really hit a home run …this is a VERY special guitar. This is also the first guitar to feature the new, elegant, Josh House fingerboard extension.
