I'm the proud owner of a Bown OM - made for me in 1991. It's a beautiful little guitar with a big, big voice - European Spruce front and Amazon Rosewood back/sides. You can see and hear it on http://www.see.ed.ac.uk/~afm/music/the_man/.
This is only one of my musical personalities - but it's the most recorded one!
Here also is an interview with Ralph for Guitar International magazine, 1991 - slightly out of date, but it tells you quite a bit about Ralph's attitude to guitar-making.
