The Karol 000/OM is based upon the classic Martin version, but slightly wider in the lower bout , and not as square at the neck/body joint. This extra soundboard width gives the guitar an increased bass response, while still maintaining an even response across the spectrum.
Karol Guitars have been built since 1999 by Anthony Karol at his workshop near Mississauga, Ontario, just west of Toronto on Lake Ontario. In addition to building, since 2003 he has been offering building courses in his shop.
From his biography:
Anthony Karol made his first electric guitar in 1978 with the help of his high school music teacher. Once he had finished education in the late 1980s he began making electric guitars in his spare time. By 1999 he had progressed to making acoustic guitars and in 2002 was able to go full time as a guitar builder. He currently makers around 10 acoustic guitars per year. Since 2003 he has been training aspiring luthiers in electric and acoustic guitar construction.
