Description

Preston Thompson OM and 14 fret 000 guitars look just about identical and share many similar qualities, including superb responsiveness and a lovely sweetness in tone. The relatively slimmer body depth gives players a quickness to the sound delivered while also delivering the string to string and bass to treble balance these models are renowned for.

The difference between an OM and the 14 fret 000 is scale length. The OM (Orchestra Model) has a longer 25.4” scale length, the same scale length as dreadnought guitars. The 14 fret 000 has the shorter 24.9” scale length. This subtle difference accounts for the unique qualities of each model. The longer OM scale length generally gives these instruments a little more punch and volume, making the OM perfect for players that both flat pick and fingerpick. The 14 Fret 000, with its shorter scale length, is perfect for finger style pickers and blues players. Because the string tension is slightly less, certain techniques like bending strings and blues style riffs are often enhanced.
