Michael puts into words how I feel about My OM of The Tree and Euro spruce.
I will never be worthy of the OM but The Karma Richard Hoover has obtained by his artistry in building with this wood will put him very high on the next Wheel.
We who are fortunate enough to own ,let alone play on a daily basis , an instrument from this wood should be very thankful.
