  • Comments: This OM is light and responsive with a very balanced yet punchy sound. The dynamic range is BIG, giving the player lots of options. I found it ideal for Ragtime and Blues pieces and really enjoy the clarity and sparkle in the Trebles. Northwood guitars are built to an incredibly high standard and it is hard to believe you can still find this level of craftsmanship at this price point. I also really enjoy the aesthetics...there is a zen-like simplicity to John's instruments, putting emphasis on beautiful woods and amazing build quality...as it should be. You can do anything and everything well with this OM, so if you are looking for the final solution, this just may be it!
