Reverse Tension Guitars OM-930C All-Solid Spruce/Mahogany Acoustic-Electric Late 2010s w/Hard Case
Handcrafted in Fort Myers, FL, this increasingly rare abalone-trimmed OM-930C All-Solid Spruce/Mahogany OM Acoustic-Electric with B-Band electronics, contoured lower bout, and an eminently playable 1 11/16" low profile neck with a silky ebony fingerboard, Reverse Tension Guitars incorporates an innovation covered by several US and international patents, and is the only company licensed to use the Reverse Tension system.
The Reverse Tension configuration pulls backward on the bridge relieving much of the pressure caused by the playing strings. By relieving the bridge, the amount of bracing normally required on the underside of the guitar top, or soundboard, can be dramatically reduced compared to the heavy bracing needed on all other acoustic guitars. Less structure means more vibration, greatly enhancing volume, balance, clarity, sustain, overtones/harmonics, and all-around greater richness of tone.
All this is accomplished while adding stability to the instrument and eliminating several possible warranty issues as the bridge and top are completely stable. (We have noticed that many production guitars are significantly over-braced. This serves only the manufacturer by way of reducing the likelihood warranty claims.) The Reverse Tension system has been used to retrofit existing guitars to great effect. (Retrofitting uses a different Reverse Tension string anchoring method than is used in RT Guitars.) It has even been used to fix guitars that have become unplayable due to high action from tops pulling up. The Reverse Tension system can take any guitar and make it better. It turns good guitars into great ones.
