Custom OM Guitar #21 72

Completed July, 2009

(click any of the thumbnails for a higher-resolution photo)


This OM guitar was custom built for the owner of a growing number of some of the finest of Skipper instruments. My only instructions were to "Make it fancy, but I don't want any #$@&* flowers." Thus the barbed wire motif. The Bostogne walnut back and sides are accented with red highlights, and the eccentric rosette continues the motif.

Construction Photos


I have very few construction pictures. To make the "bent wire" logo, I actually bent a piece of rusty barbed wire, then copied the curves and twists in abalone. The wire is all abalone, while the barbs are mother of pearl. It looks sharp! (pun intended)

Thanks for watching this project
