Odin
Odin's Jumbo

No. 23. Odin likes uncommon features when it comes to guitars. He wanted an M-style Jumbo with a "fallaway"-style cutaway for fingerpicking. But not the one you can buy in a store.  Hear the soundbites and you will hear the warm woody sound of the Cedar and the ringy reflection of the Padouk.
Here are his choices on material:
