It was built for the 2015 Wintergrass festival and features extraordinarily bearclawed Adirondack spruce top, figured maple back and sides, custom floating pickguard, and Austin’s typical aesthetic.He decided to finish it naturally due to the gorgeous figuring in the wood, and used his well honed French polish skills accordingly. I purchased this instrument a while back, having posted a “want to buy GBOM” ad on the ‘Café, and intended to have to be a forever member of my small musical family.AT THE TIME when I wrote this, it was to have been my last post as I headed off to hospital last week because of bronchitis. Oh, yes, a “medical leave of absence.” My own medical leave of absence has come to an end, so this is for all you guitar fans out there.

Plugged in they probably are as good as it gets imo. They only make a signature model now, and it's pretty pricey. Originally making banjos and mandolins in Japan, today Ozark is known for producing outstanding instruments with materials and specifications of the highest standard.Ozark has committed to continuous improvement of their instruments, ensuring that each instrument delivers comfortable playability, distinctive looks and great tone.And I would have kept this one forever, save for the opportunity to buy back one of those very few “wish I hadn’t let that one go” past residents of the family. Mint condition…NO significant fret or fingerboard wear, no dings or dents or scuffs or any signs of use. Austin’s octaves go for 00 or so new, and this one is price to sell at 00 or near offer. Many thanks in advance for the interest, and happy picking! There is a committed buyer and I will remove the ad and make my usual 'Cafe donation once the sale is completed.The first owner didn’t play it much and I have only had it several months. These are so popular that they've been hard for dealers to keep in stock.
