  • Description

    The VAOM-1C is a fingerstyle delight.  The slightly wider 1-3/4” fretboard makes it easy to play fast, intricate passages, and the cutaway design of the body affords easy reach to the highest frets.  The VAOM-1C is a full-size “OM” style guitar crafted of the finest tonewoods:  Solid African Mahogany for the back and sides, Solid Sitka Spruce for the top, and Solid African Mahogany for the neck (with solid Rosewood fretboard).  Here’s a comfortable-size, easy to play guitar that affords the legendary sparkle and resonance of Solid Mahogany, coupled with the soaring sustain of the Solid Sitka Spruce top.  This is truly a world-class guitar – it easily compares with the finest offerings of the other Major Brand manufacturers.  The no-compromise construction includes deluxe appointments like a hand-inlaid rosette, inlaid green Abalone position markers on the fretboard, gold-plated precision tuners with ebonized pegs, and a solid bone compensated bridge/saddle.  Beautiful and easy to play, yet solidly built for a lifetime of musical travels.

    5star-100
    I received my VAOM-1C and boy does it sing!  I am the proud and happy owner of several top-notch Martins: a D35 Johnny Cash, a HD28e, a solid DCPA4R as well as a 1973 00-18. I also had a 2003 D18 which I sold because it wasn't so good.
    I was expecting the VAOM-1C to sound ok but not more. "Can't have the best of both worlds" I thought. Well, now I do. It is just exquisite, so melodic and yet with a surprising sustain and expressivity.
    It is a true jewel at a more than decent price!
    All the Best and THANK YOU !
