For decades, serious flatpickers have known that the simple modification of enlarging a soundhole offers proven benefits. Though originally introduced as a cosmetic hack, we treat the large soundhole with the same respect we reserve for vintage design while retaining, in tribute, a variety of minor details unique to an iconic guitar that inspired a generation of players and luthiers. But we’ve also added a wrinkle of our own, discovering that a large soundhole transforms the OM into the finest small-bodied flatpicking guitar on the planet.
