The OOO 37s – Relic
Our OOO model features similar body dimensions to the OM, but with a 12th fret neck joint and 25.4″ scale length. As with the O 12-fret and OO, this has several important consequences. Firstly, the bridge moves downwards, closer to the centre of the lower bout where it can vibrate more freely, improving tone and sustain. The shorter neck is also stiffer, putting more of the strings’ energy into the soundboard, and the nut is closer to the player’s body, making for a comfortable playing position. Our OOO offers the same kind of clear, finely balanced as the O and OO, but with a fuller sound and more volume.
