Circle Strings OM – German Spruce & The Tree Mahogany

Serial Number: 193
Weight: 3 lbs 12 oz

Folks, it is safe to say we have reached the big leagues… This newest offering from Circle Strings is top of the mountain, the crown jewel, and a pinnacle in modern lutherie. This OM features some of the finest woodsets we’ve been able to offer through our shop. We start with an incredibly Old German Spruce top that comes from the collection of Irving Sloane, via Roger Sadowski. Such a special top requires a back & sides set of equal magnificence, and Adam Buchwald of Circle Strings was able to find an incredibly rare set of The Tree Mahogany. The figure in this set is unlike any other we’ve seen, and its tonal character is simply one-of-a kind. The pairing of these old, wonderful woods provides a huge, lush tone with a presence that simply can’t be achieved any other means. If you were searching for your life-timer, this should be a top candidate.
