OM-45 De Luxe Replica

It's always difficult to decide where to begin... But thinking about the first guitar in our new unique custom "Guitars Icons" replicas line was not so difficult. 1930 Martin OM-45 De Luxe set without any doubt the highest standards for traditionally designed high-end guitars. And we believe that our replica keeps them all as well as she uses all improvements reached in guitar building during 90 years lasted from her original birth.

What to say about her? This guitar, as well as any other in our production, is purely hand-made in any detail and keeps the exact specification as the original has. Pre-ban CITES certified Brazilian Rosewood is used for b&s and the headplate, Adirondack top and all the body is trimmed by pearl inlays and ivoroid binding, "45-style" pearl snowflakes and diamonds are in Ebony fingerboard and two pearl snowflakes in Ebony bridge. Multicoloured mosaic backstrip accents that natural beauty of brazilian back as well as vintage-replica-made golden Krishot banjo tuners with ivoroid knobs emphasize all the grain of Honduran Mahogany neck. Bone nut, through saddle and pins with pearl dots together with pearl torch inlays on the peghead make the background for the design top of this model, which makes this guitar easily recognizable - pearl floral inlays in the tortoise pickduard.

Hard to talk about the sound of this icon, but everybody who played her couldn't believe she is not 90 years old...

The ROZAWOOD workshop is the vision of luthier Roman Zajíček, who is known as one of the finest guitar makers in Europe.
Many European players and guitar sellers consider Roman among the “top 5” guitar makers worldwide. His instruments are known for their impressive tone and impeccable workmanship.

 

Roman, engineer of profession, loves music above all. His quest for beauty of acoustic tone led him to building instruments himself.
Roman built his first instruments in 1979. His reputation of a man with deep sensitivity for wood and tone began to spread among high-end instrument lovers with every guitar he created. ROZAWOOD was born and after some time, when Roman built guitars all by himself, his activities outgrew him. In 2003 Roman found a partner to finance and manage his ongoing activities and the new ROZAWOOD workshop was established.

 

Roman is part of the impressive history of Bohemian instrument making, which is considered to be the longest in the world. A nice exampleis C.F. Martin who originates from the town Markneukirchen, not so far from where Roman lives and works. This region is still the cradle of many high-end instrument makers, mostly working in small shops. Although the professionally marketed American luthiers are better known, some of these Bohemian luthiers are impressive instrument makers equal and sometimes better craftsmen than their American colleagues. Roman’s knowledge of traditional violin construction combined with his technical insight and experience as guitar maker made him one of the finest luthiers of Europe. His unique construction design resulted over the years in a wide range of fine high-end acoustic instruments of highest quality and impressive acoustic sound.

 

All our production, made from special selected solid tonewoods and other top quality materials only, is purely handmade in any detail. Even today very rare handcut pearl inlays are standard in our workshop. We use tap-tuning for every our instrument as a standard too – every top is tuned by tapping on and subsequent corresponding adjustment.
Every instrument is during all building process checked by Roman personally (if even is not built whole by Roman only) and for quality confirmation is signed by Roman after all.

 

ROZAWOOD is not a factory or a manufacture, but an art workshop where only skilled and trained luthiers put their best efforts into every unique ROZAWOOD instrument …

 

Roman is a member of the Guild of Prague Luthiers.
