Blackbird Guitars has teamed up with Elixir Strings to outfit the latest version of the company's Super OM guitar.


The guitars were designed for players seeking robust guitars that can be used in a variety of settings ranging from typical indoor stage concerts to performances on the docks of Antarctica, according to the company.

The full-size Super OM acoustic guitar is built from carbon fiber materials which is designed to allow the instrument to be durable. When looking for the proper strings to complement the guitar line, the company selected acoustic 80/20 bronze light gauge Elixir Strings with Nanoweb Coating.

Compared to traditional guitar strings, Elixir Strings use an ultra thin Nanoweb Coating to prevent oxidization and corrosion.

All Blackbird Guitars include a hollow neck and head, and are made of carbon fiber. This structure allows the guitars to transmit a wider range of frequencies not found in traditional wood guitars, the company says. Elixir Strings add a distinct sound quality to the unique tone of the Blackbird Guitar line, they say.

Pricing & Availability
The suggested retail price for the Super OM is $2,495.

Blackbird Guitars launched a new version of the Super OM guitar at Winter NAMM 2010. The Super OM provides the same dreadnought volume and fullness found in big guitars, but in a compact frame which provides players with superior resonance.

Interested parties can meet with the designers to create a custom guitar. For more information on Elixir Strings, visit www.elixirstrings.com. For more information on Blackbird Guitars, or to find a dealer near you, visit www.blackbirdguitar.com.
