Farida Old Town Series OT-25 VBS Acoustic Guitar

Also available in a wide neck.

Farida's Old Town series guitars marry classic American design with 21st century construction techniques. These handcrafted guitars are true modern classics. This 00-sized model pairs a sunburst-finished solid Sitka spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides for clear, balanced tone.

“Set up with comfortably low action, the OT-25 was easy on my fretting hand, and not bad for fingerstyle, though the Wider string-spacing option would be a better choice for frequent fingerpickers. Strummed, the OT-25 sounded full and tonally even. [...] Volume was neither modest nor mammoth, but the OT-25’s moderate muscle could hold its own during a two-guitar strumming session.”
