Description

Benavides Guitars' OM model is comfortable in feel, playability and tone. Balance between highs and lows are often sought after by finger stylists and was taken into a delicate balance with this unique combination of tone woods.  A Traditional Sitka Spruce top over NZ Rimu back and sides, a relatively new tone wood to guitar making with a warm Koa like tone, have made a sweet and very responsive small bodied guitar.  Tap tuned braces attached with Hot Hide Glue set this guitar apart from the rest and are one of the many reasons it will age with distinction.
