Tacoma Olympia OB3CE No. 7

I made this baritone guitar out of what I believe to be a used 2010 Tacoma Olympia OB3CE – basically the Olympia brand of Thundercheif. There is a little buckle rash on the back and very few small nicks in the binding. Other than that, I found no flaws while I was converting it – it still even has its transparent pick guard. I finished it with gold tuners and a sound port. This is one big beautiful guitar. Out of the nearly 200 guitars I have made so far, this model 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. The owner of the others I have made absolutely love theirs. I am selling this guitar on eBay for $599 plus shipping. As of this writing I have a hard case available for an additional $75. Sold - Thanks Jim!
