The OMZ design is my own take on an OM shape. All of my aesthetic details are made with sonic properties in mind as well as durability to last the test of time. The colour scheme of this guitar is such that it highlights the green fungus cherry wood (rosette and headstock inlay). My opinion is that nature has the ability to create works of art beyond any human ability therefore I try to use that to adorn my guitars. The binding and purfling follows a very simple theme with very few contrasting lines so as not to take away from the natural beauty of the featured green rot cherry pieces as well as the stunning ziricote back and sides. When choosing the animal that would work well with the colours and feel of the guitar I chose the Great Blue Heron because it just seemed fitting with the design’s simplicity and the colour scheme. I associate great blue herons with a sense of serenity and calmness, which I feel the simplicity of the guitar’s decorative features help portray.
This is a Treehouse Guitars original body design called the OMZ. The sound port design as well as “Blue Heron” burning are original concepts executed by Zachary Lefebvre in his shop in Ontario, Canada.
A guitar with a distinct form, style and class paired with a voice that enlightens your tonal desires. This guitars curves, balance, decorations and thick satisfying tone lend it to have a more feminine side.
