[NAMM] Blackbird Guitars Super-OM
Blackbird Guitars are launching their first full-size acoustic, dubbed the Super-OM - for Orchestra Model.
Blackbird's one-piece, hollow body, neck, and head carbon-fiber construction transforms the guitar into a resonator-enhancing loudness, frequency-range and sustain while reducing resonance-robbing weight.
The Super-OM has a curvaceous design and 21 frets, a hollow head with Stereo Sound Port which integrates with the hollow carbon-fiber construction, and the Super-OM Asymmetric Acoustic Design. The off-set sound-hole, located at soundboard edge where the waist of a conventional guitar would be, is designed to further enhance resonance with an increased vibrating area, light bracing and a nod to the traditional symmetrical form.
The back of the instrument is contoured with multiple body cutaways and the carbon fiber uni-body is designed for greater ruggedness.
Pricing & Availability
March 2009 for a MSRP of $1899 or $2039 with electronics.
