Used G# G Sharp OF-1 Electric Guitar Comes W/Gigbag
This one came in via trade and is a first for us. If you are not hip to these guitars, they are really quite impressive. When I think of traveler guitars, I often think of low quality instruments that struggle to hold tune. This guitar has changed my opinion on what a traveler should be. It is made of quality materials, the neck is straight and it sounds great. The small body takes a little getting used to, but after a few minutes you will be right at home. The instrument does have a little wear but nothing major. The gold hardware has some cloudiness, discoloration and pitting. On the fretboard, the finish has been rubbed off in some areas (see pictures) and appears a light color than the glossy areas. There is some staining on the neck, neck heal and the body. The frets are in good shape with no real wear. The electronics are clean and sound great.
The Øivin Fjeld model, or OF-1 as it’s been dubbed, is a small guitar with a scale length of 530 mm (20.75”) The neck-through guitar is made from solid mahogany (Khaya ivorensis) with a maple fretboard. These features, combined with a single-coil pickup of Øivin's design, give this instrument a clean warm tone.
At the request of Øivin’s guitarist friends, he began a small production. What he did not expect was the great demand for them once the secret got out. The OF-1 model has been manufactured since 2005 and over 4,000 of them have made their way into the hands of happy guitarists around the world.
Øivin's simplistic approach to guitar design has received great responses from many well-known guitarists. Among them you will find the band A-Ha, Davey Johnstone (Elton John), Jarle Bernhoft, Johnny Winter, Roy Rogers, Tommy Emmanuel, Unni Wilhelmsen and many more.
