The Sigma SOMR-28 OM guitar combines Solid Sitka Spruce for the top with Solid Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. Beautifully built, this guitar is highly rewarding for the fingerstyle guitarist. A jet black ebony fretboard is complemented by a bone nut and saddle, while Grover open-gear tuners complete the package.
The engine of this guitar is the Sitka Spruce top, with a brightness and attack which brings the dark Rosewood to life. Rosewood is thought of by luthiers as a “slow” wood, lacking the quick response of, say, maple, but rewarding with acres of sustain and rich overtones. These woods are combined in a traditional OM body - the body style of choice for fingerstyle players who prioritise balance and articulation. Not quite as loud as a dreadnought, the OM makes up for this in refinement, responding to the skilled guitarist’s most subtle inputs. The pinched waste and shallower body also make it very comfortable to play seated.
In terms of aesthetics, the Sigma SOMR 28 has a premium traditional look, straight out of the golden age of acoustic guitars. Multi-strip purfling surrounds the body to the back and front, matching the multi-strip rosette. A tortoiseshell pickguard protects the top from pick damage, while subtle abalone markers are inlaid in the fretboard. The body is white bound, setting off the woods and purfling perfectly. Open-gear Grover tuners provide solid and accurate tuning, while an included Softshell Case ensures your prized guitar looks its best for years to come.
