OM, 14 Fret 25.5” scale: You can think of the Vintage OM as a smaller version of Bourgeois' Dreadnought - or maybe it's the other way around. Because of its characteristic superb balance, clarity of voice, and sustaining top register, the OM is often thought of as the quintessential fingerstyle guitar. It's not surprising, though, that more than a few players appreciate these same characteristics not only for flatpicking but also for a variety of other applications. Bourgeois scallops both sides of the X brace on the OM. This provides the” looseness” required in a smaller guitar to produce a clear, strong bass response, and power and projection that belies its size.
