The OM-45 is a highly ornamented version of the venerable OM. It is available in two models, an OM-45 Standard, and an OM-45 Deluxe.

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-45 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. The OM-45 model's exquisite mother-of-pearl trim offers a visual counterpart to its fine acoustic qualities.
