Used – Kelday OM Brazilian/Adirondack Red (2007)

Serial Number: Healdsburg 3 of 4

Bill Kelday is all about tone and so is this fine OM. It has amazing balance and power to spare. Its voice clearly harkens back to the prewar Martin guitars but there’s something more there, an intangible beauty that is all Kelday. The dark, rich Brazilian Rosewood can be felt in the bass and the full, clear trebles. The spruce top offers up unending power. The sustain is lovely and the playability is perfect. I really like the versatility of this OM it seems to be happy playing anything you throw at it from Celtic to Blues and beyond. This is one of a quartet of guitars he made for the Healdsburg Guitar Festival.
