Tacoma Olympia OB3CE

 I made this baritone guitar out of a brand used Tacoma Olympia OB3CE – basically the Olympia brand of Thundercheif. There are a couple of small dings on the top that are not immediately noticeable and other small, minor signs of use but nothing obvious. The very minor cosmetic issues aside, this is one big beautiful guitar. Out of the nearly 80 guitars I have made so far, this one has the biggest, deepest bottom end tone yet. If you finger pick or don’t strum overly hard you can tune this guitar down to G – G very easily with regular guitar strings and it will still sound great. If you play in situations where there is no bass and you plan on filling in by walking the bass line on your guitar, this is the ideal guitar for you. I will make more of these if I can find the basses to do it. I am selling this guitar on eBay for $525 with no case. Sold - Thanks Jean Paul!
