Tacoma Olympia OB3CE No. 9

I made this baritone guitar out of what I believe to be a 2002 Tacoma Olympia OB3CE (basically the Olympia brand of Thundercheif) in very good condition. There are a few small dings on the edge of the head stock and a few other dings on the body but nothing that is immediately visible without very close inspection. 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 with the possible exception of an actual Tacoma Thunderchief. 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 no case for $599 plus shipping. As of this writing I do have a hard case in good condition for and additional $75 plus shipping. Sold - Thanks Michael!
