I designed the OM and OMC guitar with the aim of creating a rich and complete acoustic sound, working closely with guitarist Étienne Joly to achieve a comfortable and stage-ready instrument.
The OMC's Spanish-style construction, with its soundboard pressed into its solera, its braces perfectly matched to the chalk vault and its Spanish heel neck attachment, guarantees that this guitar will stand the test of time while always delivering an outstanding sound.
To ensure the stability of the neck and the durability of the instrument, this model, like all Cléroux guitars, is equipped with carbon fiber reinforcements on each side of the adjustable stainless steel rod, as well as stainless steel frets.
A strong instrument with a deep sound, in a refined design where every detail has been carefully crafted: with the OM model, you simply can't go wrong.
Whether it's for recording in the studio, performing or writing a song while enjoying a glass of scotch in the comfort of your home, this is the guitar for you.
Details to note
Thanks to its slightly arched design, the soundboard pressed into the solera allows to lighten the top.
The Spanish-style jointed neck and the addition of carbon fiber reinforcements ensure optimal vibration transmission, from the neck to the body.
Cléroux guitars are presently available on custom order. I also have some guitars ready to ship.

Did you know...
The Spanish jointing technique is the oldest technique for attaching the neck to the body on a guitar. In fact, this was the technique used by Antonio de Tores, the first luthier to build guitars as we know them today. This technique consists in gluing the neck on to the soundboard, then sliding the sides into slots previously cut in the neck whilst gluing them. In this way, the neck is not glued directly to the body: instead, the wooden neck piece is integrated into the body to form a very robust joint that allows for optimal sound transmission through the entire instrument.
