madrone burl omni


date finished: september 2016

number: 004


   This guitar was the first Omni to be built. As such, it has some different features and contours than the subsequent guitars. The main differences between this and the future versions of the Omni are as follows: different contour shape of the blended neck heel, different headstock shape without the ACER logo, and sound holes off the side of the guitar by the neck joint. The reasons I refined the guitar to no longer include these are due to aesthetics.

   Nonetheless, this is a fantastic guitar with a stunning set of woods. The Madrone burl top has a classy look from afar, but when one gets closer, the subtle chaos of the burl starts to show. It also features a striped Ebony fretboard topping a stunning Cocobolo neck. The whole guitar is bound with lovely Rosewood binding - even the sound holes and the truss rod cover.
