I didn’t order it. It was brand new. I don’t recall playing a OOO. I went to Steve Swan’s shop and played it. I then looked at him and said,” Get me a blindfold and hand me every OM in the Shop.”
He put the blindfold on and I played six different OMs: Brazilian and German Spruce, EIR and Sitka, Mahogany and Adirondack, and three others I can’t remember. I decided on the one I liked. It was the one I started with.
It had the deep rumble of an approaching storm, sparkling highs, perfect action. I have never played another SCGC OM like it. It was plain old straight grained Mahogany and a nice Adirondack Top. No bling, just a simple guitar that helped save my right shoulder and elbow after 17 years of playing the Dread.
