Beyond convention: We appreciate powerful, big guitars like dreadnoughts but they are 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.

Beyond convention: We appreciate powerful, big guitars like dreadnoughts but they are 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.

ABOUT BLACKBIRD GUITARS
Blackbird Guitars was founded by Joe Luttwak and Kyle Wolfe and now includes fellow designer Troy Stevens. After years searching for a compact guitar actually worth bringing along for the ride, all they could find was thin sounding and fragile. Eventually they realized that none of the established companies would tackle this problem so they decided to do it themselves. It started innocently enough with the typical design process: produce as many ideas as possible and prototype them. It helped having all the latest tools such as three-dimensional CAD (computer-aided design), computer controlled laser cutters and routers as well as advanced materials such as carbon-fiber, and structural foams. Also, being based in the San Francisco Bay Area meant access to many of world's great steel-string luthiers who consulted and encouraged the project along. It quickly became clear that their non-traditional backgrounds were resulting in radically new directions. The result is part mountain dulcimer and part F1 race car that harmoniously balances technology with traditional craftsmanship. All Blackbird Guitars are built in their shop in San Francisco overlooking the Bay.
