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.
