New price! For a little history of the JOMC model, we turn to the Bourgeois website:
"The Jumbo OM Cutaway, or JOMC, is an original body style developed by Dana in the late 80's, in response to players' requests for a mid-sized guitar with the balance and clarity of an OM but with a bigger presence. The idea was simple: Start with the OM outline, enlarge it a bit, play around with the curves and deepen the sides. The result is a wonderfully versatile guitar; larger than an OM, smaller than a Dreadnought, capable of handling almost any playing style you can imagine, and equally capable of operating in solo or ensemble situations."
This JOMC is from the Bourgeois "Presentation Series", and features some special appointments not found on standard models. These include a beautifully figured "bearclaw" Adirondack top, Brazilian rosewood back & sides (what a combo!), and the Bourgeois snake headstock. Other cosmetic features include a wood binding for the body, neck & headstock, abalone rosette, and gold open-gear Waverly tuners. The nut width measures 1 3/4" with 2 5/16" spacing at the bridge. The only modification to the guitar is an aftermarket pickup (Schertler Bluestick), so it's all ready to go for live performance. With the punch of a larger guitar and the sweetness on the high-end, this guitar would be suited for pretty much any style of play you'd want to throw at it!
