Enhanced bracing system ensures consistent, long-term tonal balance.
The OM-40 was born from years of research and testing features Jean Larrivee’s first new bracing pattern in over 46 years. This “Scalloped Parabolic Hybrid” bracing system perfectly merges the strength, tonal balance, and clarity of Larrivee bracing, with the bass response, depth, and volume you’d expect from a vintage dreadnought.
Made only in America, the OM-40 comes standard with an exceptional feature set compared to similar style instruments from other manufacturers. The OM-40 has a solid African ebony fretboard and bridge, single-piece mahogany neck, Canadian maple binding, bone saddle, bone nut, and bone bridge pins. Other features include a mother-of-pearl logo, Grover 18:1 open back tuners, non-shrink tortoise pickguard, double action truss rod (easily adjusted at full-string tension), re-enforcement for side mount electrics, durable acrylic satin finish, bold rope purfling, arch top case, and a lifetime warranty.
