Russel Crosby hand builds just over a dozen guitars per year from his shop in Jordan Falls, Nova Scotia. The Crosby OM is one of several models available. Crosby uses a mix of local and exotic woods in his construction.

This Crosby OM with cutaway was built during 2011, and features a Sitka Spruce top with East Indian Rosewood back, sides and headplate and walnut for the neck. The fingerboard and bridge are Macassar Ebony, while the binding is curly maple. The roseette is made with cocobolo and green abalone.

For hardware, the nut and saddle are bone, the tuners are by Schaller and an L R Baggs Anthem pickup system is installed.

The fingerboard width is 1.7 inches and the scale length is 25.4 inches.

This is a very well built guitar and is in pristine condition. It plays well, though it appears to have been not played much - it sounds good now, and will improve with use.

An archtop hardshell case is included.

This is a consignment piece. Prices shown are in US dollars and are based on a recent exchange rate. For Canadian dollar pricing, please follow the More Details link here to our website posting at .
