We are happy to present the latest Baron guitars at the WILS, a showcase that has gathered dozens of craftsmens for the last 10 years. It's the perfect moment to try our instruments and to meet the luthier Maxime Baron. Here are the details on the displayed instruments. Please note that guitars won't be available for purchase.
Unlike what you might think of smaller body size, this OO has a powerful voice. The sitka spruce soundboard combined to the wenge back and sides allow depth and sweet low frequencies that you wouldn't expect from a OO. The flamed maple neck, the slotted headstock and the "Compass" rosette are details that makes it stand out.

t is the antithesis of the industry's standard. This OM is made out of our private stock of tonewood: Italian spruce top and perfectly quartersawn flamed maple back, sides, bridge, neck and fingerboard. Its tone is different from the standard OM, bright and focused, not without depth and projection.

This guitar is unique in many ways. It's a prototype of a 12 strings with a short scale, which creates a powerful tone that blends the bells and the choir. The back, sides and bridge are made of ziricote. The fingerboard and the headplate were made from the same piece of wood, also ziricote, which creates a beautiful unity.
