Nazareth Rosewood

Hand-crafted OM built with attention to every detail, in the tradition of the masters in Nazareth, PA.  

Available with:

  • East Indian rosewood (Nazareth-R) back and sides or
  • Brazilian rosewood (Nazareth-B) back and sides, from my private reserve of 1980s era Brazilian.  This is a limited supply so please don’t wait if this is what you are looking for.  My pricing is significantly lower than others’ so why wait??

Premium woods, hand-fitted dovetail neck joint and animal glue result in a clarity and depth of tone second to none.   Put the Nazareth R up against any other OM and you will not put it down.  Fantastic fingerstyle or with a flatpack.  

“Radiused top and back yield enhanced midrange and volume while retaining the OM clarity and versatility”
