Tacoma Olympia OB3C3 No. 8

I made this baritone guitar out of what I believe to be a 2006 factory remanufactured Tacoma Olympia OB3CE (basically the Olympia brand of Thundercheif) in very nearly perfect condition. I found no flaws while converting it other than very slight usage. I finished it with chrome 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 with a very nice Tacoma Thundercheif padded gig bag for $625 plus shipping. Sold - Thanks Michael!
