Highlights

Only 200 raffle tickets will be sold to win this handcrafted custom and highly-coveted Preston Thompson Guitar! Raffle tickets are $50 each.

This is an OM guitar with a beautiful Cuban Mahogany set paired with a great sounding Adirondack Spruce top. The size of an OM gives you an immediate voice, deep and resonance with a sustain that shows off the tone of this special mahogany.  This is a great sized model for finger-style players and pickers alike. Simon highlighted his original Regency torch inlay by making it out of a combination of maple and walnut woods, accenting the rope top purfling and the maple fretboard markers. Luthier Gareth Jenkins hand carved the braces and hand graduated the tops to capture the vintage tone players are looking for. These special boutique guitars are crafted right here in Sisters, Oregon!
