The OM, or Orchestra Model, has long been the first choice amongst fingerstyle players. It is by far the most often ordered guitar from the Borges shop.

Julius Borges is known for his interpretation/reproduction of the 1929 OM. Following his intuitions on what makes the originals tick, he produces a guitar that will continually reveal it's complexities to you over time. The Borges OM is a distinctly articulate instrument which displays solid fundamentals bathed in harmonics and upper partials. While ideal for fingerstyle playing, because of their tremendous headroom, Borges OM's are equally well suited for the flatpicker who likes to dig in.
