The Oscar Schmidt OG2SM is one of the most beautiful acoustic guitars out there, takes the shape of a classic dreadnought with spalted maple top, Mahogany sides and back and High gloss finish. not only a beautiful look but also excellent sound and full acoustic resonance. and a price you do not see at this quality level often – we’ll see you face it! by the way, this is a full-sized guitar so younger or small framed players will find this to be too much guitar.

This review will show you all its features, the hardware that were used to build it, its pros and cons, my rating for the guitar and my recommendations.
Unbeatable sound for its price, compared to other guitars in its class. built and constructed well so it can always stay in tune after each adjustment. standard X- bracing[/caption] The combo of the maple top, mahogany neck and bridge deliver one of the best tunes together. the mellowness tune of the maple top and smooth low and mid-tones of mahogany, Extra brightness, and airiness added by the rosewood fretboard. A standard X- bracing produces excellent stability and a balanced voice. and a set of durable strings will amaze you with the first touch. Overall sound quality of the guitar is good though it has a crisp sound ( which too many don’t like it).
