Vola Guitars Releases the OZ RV TNC Model

An all-new model loaded with high-end specs, a light-weight mahogany body, and unique pickup positioning.


This brand-new Oz model, the OZ TNC, has a light-weight mahogany body and a flame maple top comes in three gorgeous color options: Light Tiger Eye Burst, Sapphire Blue Gloss, and Tribal Black Gloss. In addition to the new look, Vola designed a unique pickup positioning known as the Fanned Pickup Layout. This new design increases the response from the treble strings and gives the player more control over the low-end strings.

Vola added a push/pull volume control for the neck pickup, a tone knob that can push/pull to coil-tap for front & rear pickup, a versatile 5-way switch, and a “blower” switch, which allows the player to bypass the volume & tone controls.

Students at the O’Brien Guitars school bind their instruments following a more traditional European style of guitar making.

Finding the right school can be tough for any aspiring luthier. Here are some options to consider.

In my previous column, “So, You Want to Be a Luthier?”, I talked about the types of people attracted to lutherie training programs, some of the possibilities and options these individuals have at their disposal, and discussed both long-term and short-term training, either of which have their place for primary or supplemental training. But the question remains, what school should you choose for your lutherie training? And what might a school have to offer that would best suit your educational needs?
