We all appreciate powerful, big guitars like dreadnoughts but they can be cumbersome. The Blackbird Super Orchestra Model has a cannon voice with dreadnought volume and fullness but is compact and 3D sculpted with body cuts for enhanced comfort and playability. The tone goes above and beyond convention with uncommon sustain, perfect clarity and string balance the length of the fretboard. The OM’s power and clarity is born from Blackbird’s holistic approach to maximizing resonance: a proprietary hollow neck and head carbon-fiber uni-body construction, asymmetric design with off-set sound hole, as well as a head and body sound port. It’s also among the lightest guitars in the world which further helps produce a tone that evokes a custom wooden instrument, but this acoustic is nearly indestructible and impervious.
The Mi-Si rechargeable system is really astounding, and puts the travel capabilities of this guitar over the top. Just 60 seconds of charging the battery gives you 16 hours of power. How cool is that? Never change that 9v battery again.
